The patch looks rather good, in particular the modifications to blockio
I had forgotten to check in the ubuntu kernel package.
But the point is that this very issue was already fixed - slightly

upstream repository. Hence my proposal of more collaboration instead of
this duplication of effort.

sure thing. I am sorry this went this way. Still have to separate the necessary
from the cosmetically parts (I believe only the bits below should matter, but
