Why it is being redone if it was put into next? And even then, several
other maintainers just apply a fix on top (I think Andrew Morton, Greg
KH, Mark Brown) to avoid rebasing, preserve the history and also give
credits to the fixer.

Anyway, if it is going to be squashed at least SoB would be nice (as Dan
will take Colin's code).
