Yes, give me a chance, it's still early in the merge window. Actually,
for something so trivial as this, it will probably wait until after
3.9-rc1 is out, the number of people who build a running system without
CONFIG_NET is probably pretty small :)

Don't worry, the patch is not lost, it's in my "to-apply" queue.
