I can drop this in since it sounds like enough agree. One thing I was
thinking is that I should actually snapshot the patches, just on
principle, since this is currently pulling them from the most current

I'll put this in and bump the pkgrel. Should I build and upload a new
kernel or wait for the next round that tpowa or someone else does?
