We do not add patches to our kernel that have not been merged upstream,
will not be merged upstream, or have not been submitted upstream. I do
not know why an exception was made in this case. This patch has been
there for 3 or 4 major kernel versions (or longer?). Where is the bug
report? The mailing list thread? The upstream commit?

I will not add this patch back unless it appears in the appropriate
subsystem tree or in the Linus tree.
