Yes. It's an extension of that. Plus I did it wrong and managed to lose the
actual first patch, I realise.

Here's an example of what I think it could look like:

I did the following:

(1) Rebased all but the last of Vivek's patches onto the same base as my
pkcs7 and pefile patches.

(2) Substituted on of Andrew Morton's patches for one of Vivek's.

(3) Stacked a merge of my stuff on top of Vivek's.

(4) Stacked Vivek's final patch on top of that and fixed it to work with my
changed stuff.

I'm leaving that to Vivek as to when he wants to push that out, though - and
whether or not he wants to push from my tree or his own.
