Well, maybe, but one is a logical continuation of the other, and
including the second one preempted review comments saying "why don't you
merge the two implementations".

That's not really for me to decide? I thought net was just for the
things that needed fixing and should be sent to -stable - which is the
only reason I even split this in two, so there's a minimal logical fix
for the 6250. Otherwise I'd just have squashed the two, so that I don't
add lines only to delete them, along with the rest of the function, later.

Jakub, David, it's up to you.
