It got lost in the patch system in the middle of the SPEAR deluge -
and after that deluge I did say on list that it would result in things
being missed.  I've basically been ignoring everything in there since
beyond the top few newest entries.

In any case, I believe it's too late in this merge window with only
four days left to start merging large amounts of code.  I'd get
moaned at by Linus.  Sorry.
