Applied to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing
for the autobuilders to play with it.

I thought about queueing this up as a fix, but as it is unlikely
to be hit and there is another patch (which isn't a fix) dependent
on it I went with the worst of both worlds and took it for the next
merge window whilst marking it for stable.

I added a note to the description to say why for when people see
it next cycle

Thanks,

Jonathan
