One common way to handle it is that instead of sitting on the patch to fix PCI
for months, you post that early such that when the rest is posted, it's been in
the kernel for a long time.

In practice, that's sometimes hard to do, but it's the ideal situation.

Anyway, I've queued up these patches for 4.3. Thanks!
