That's really kind. I'm having a kill list of 2.6.32 patches here as
well that I expect to put into this week-end, including
this one. We've done several rounds with Andy last night at carefully
testing all the backports till we got something rock solid. We were
missing a few fixes in this area some time ago, making it hard to
merge the fixes properly.

I'm attaching the whole list as a tgz. Maybe the last two will not yet
get in, I'm synchronizing with Greg on this.
