Patrick,

Can you just point us to the right patch, that extends API ? I seem to
hit the wrong patch. I dont see any .h changes also. 

Is there a way, we can work around for stable branch alone? We may need
release team approval, if we have to update API (I guess so, though EDS
isn't part of platform, we may have to atleast check with them)
