I see. Andrew reverted some stuff to fix his PII (which I broke BTW
it wasn't a problem in your original patches) but he didn't revert everything

Ok on the next resync everything will be dropped there.

Thanks. It's not that urgent because the merge will need a few days
at least.

Also I must admit I haven't figured out yet if yours or Rusty's patchkit
is better. So far I was leaning towards yours, but that might be because
I haven't looked closely at Rusty's version.
