Can you explain why you have submitted these patches to my patch tracker
with a copy to stable at vger.kernel.org ?

What makes these qualify for stable tree inclusion?  What regression are
they fixing?

We don't put patches into the stable tree for things that /never/ worked
in the past.  We've never supported 32 CPUs so I don't think these

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: now at 9.7Mbps down 460kbps up... slowly
improving, and getting towards what was expected from it.
