I'll send an update of the patch in question shortly.

Thanks!

The "how" part really depends on Greg. Nothing in my queue depends on
these patches at the moment, so I have no hard preferences.

As far as the "when" part goes, realistically, we are about a week
away from the 4.9 merge window I think, so 4.10 would be my target.

Thanks,
Rafael
