I somehow missed Stefan's patch, and was not pinged, unfortunately. I
see it in my mailbox, but it does not apply anymore because it conflicts
with patches from st.com which I applied recently.

Stefan, would you re-send a new version and add:

Cc: stable at kernel.org [3.2+]

Sorry for missing your patch.

Additional notes about -stable.

When Greg will try to push this patch to -stable, the patch won't apply,
and he traditionally sends an e-mail in such cases with something like
"if you care, send me an applicable version, or I'll drop this patch".
He usually adds people who signed-off the patch to CC. So to make sure
Linus W. gets this patch in -stable, we need to add his Signed-off by as
well, and then he'll need to respond to Greg.

Best Regards,
Artem Bityutskiy
