Sorry about that.  I am indeed on the hook for that.   I got distracted 
with some other patches and haven't yet reposted that one :-(
I will do that later today.  If you would prefer to do it yourself, 
that's fine too.

I'm fine with them going in through you if you have a strong preference 
for that approach.   Generally my preference is for patches to go in 
through the direct maintainer's tree to minimize the risk and hassle of 
merge conflicts.  But if you'll take care of that side of it, it doesn't 
matter too much to me :-)   We just need to pick up acks from the direct 
maintainers, I guess?
