"superseeded" implies that this patch needs to be applied in order for
the "new" one to work properly. So I tried applying it, but it doesn't
apply cleanly. Then I tried by removing this patch and then applying
the new one. That too didn't work at all.
So, what am I supposed to do here? Leave this in, and apply something
else between it and the newer one? Drop this and you provide a
backport? Something else?
