Hi Thomas,

i think it was silly from my side to send such a *huge* patch at once,
but original idea was to get an overwiew of the change in general, that
is why I put changelog on top. So this patch (well RFC) was not to inclusion
but for review only ;) And even if you/Ingo have it applied to a tree it would
be totally undisectable anyway (as you pointed). So I will make quilt series
this weekend. Thanks a lot!
