I'm OK if the "Fixes" is stripped when applying or if someone tells me
to re-post without the Fixes--just let me know. In general I do a lot
of cherry-picks from upstream and I appreciate the Fixes tag helping
to link patches together. In this case if I picked the original patch
I'd definitely want this one too. Certainly, though, CCing stable
would make no sense in this case. ;-)
