-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Dave Jones <davej@xxxxxxxxxx>

As mentioned in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5015
The helptext implies that this is on by default.
This may be true on some distros (Fedora/RHEL have it enabled
in /etc/sysctl.conf), but the kernel defaults to it off.
