Thanks for the heads-up.

My fixes branch is already based off pre-rc1, and in general Linus can
handle a trivial merge conflict like that.

But given I had to send a v2 to fix the 32-bit build (doh!), I'll move
my fixes up past rc1 once Linus has merged what's in there now, and then
do this patch based on top of rc1, so there'll be no conflict.
