Thanks for the patch, looks sensible. It appears Jarod Wilson has also
Acked the patch . Unfortunately, we've already uploaded our final
Maverick kernels and the entire archive officially freezes in an hour.
Should a last minute upload be required before Maverick officially
releases, this would likely get included. However, at the very least, I
think this does qualify for a Maverick kernel SRU (stable release
update) so I'm therefore providing my Ack for the SRU. I've also gone
ahead and updated the bug description to add the SRU justification.
