Please just send the patch to the existing bug report that I mentioned. No 
need to create a new one.

I'd suggest a mail with the following content. This will make sure that 
the fact a patch is available is registered in the BTS.

Yes, I understood that. I'm just unsure how many other arches have the 
same problem. And even then, it may be "cleaner" to do it on a per arch 
basis as then the exceptions are probably easier to remove later.
Just make sure that you add the code to determine kernel version in a 
place where it is available for all arches.
