I noticed that you pulled in this patch (slightly updated subject). I
had it part of my queue that was going thought my tests, which have
just finished. I was going to send you a pull request today.

Is it OK that I keep that patch? Otherwise, I need to pull it out and
rerun my tests without it.

I would have had this to you earlier but because of the merge
conflicts of my last pull request that this queue depended on, I based
all my new changes off of the merge commit you had made with my
previous pull request, and that contained bugs that would prevent my
tests from passing (as you saw with the one memory mapping issue).

I'll go ahead and send you the pull request that I have that contains
this patch as well, but feel free to reject it if you want me to redo
my queue without it.
