Apologies, this is one of the reasons I wanted to wait till the end of
the week to do the pull request. I'm currently traveling (on my way
home), and using my laptop for all my work (at home I use my
workstation). I almost sent the pull request without even mentioning
the SDT work. That's because I had tested that and pushed it into
linux-next some time ago and completely forgot about it. I caught the
error looking at the patches before sending, redid the signed tag by
mentioning it and sent it out.

I would have had a deeper explanation about the change otherwise. I
really hate merge windows while I'm traveling :-(
