Both of these address, yes?
I added that info to the changelogs, to close the loop.

Ingo, I'd propose merging both these together rather than routing one
via the x86 tree, OK?

Question is: when? Are we confident enough to merge it into 2.6.30
now, or should we hold off for I guess we have a week or
more, and if the changes do break something, we can fix that in ;)
