Sorry I may have accidently top posted my response to this. Here is
where my response should go:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good point, I can post this with your correction.

I will add your Acked-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com>

I am adding your Acked-by to the revised patch as this is what Michal
asked me to do (so I assume that is what I should do).

Should I post as a separate fix again or simply post here?

I'll post here and if you prefer a fresh submission, let me know and
I'll do that.

Thank-you for reviewing this patch.
