I was actually pretty surprised that this patch stuck when I first
posted it for that very reason.  I'm quite sure I posted this as a RHEL
customer put in a request for the feature, but since I'm clearly less
invested today in that subset of Linux users than I was when I posted
that patch it doesn't bother me one bit if it is pulled!
