Ok, we can wait until my patch propagates into Linus' tree, but I
would have thought it would be a waste of your time to apply a patch
which is waiting to be inevitably superseded by a different one. I can
see there are 238 PRs at Linus' tree on github and I am very glad that
I looked into one of them --- it contained a long comment explaining
that I should NOT do what I was just about to do, i.e. make a PR
against Linus' tree! :)

And, besides, in the email conversation Linus approved my version of
the patch anyway.

Kind regards,
