Hmm... this will be outside the merge window... I think I'll merge it on our
tree after sending the first pull request for 2.6.30 (probably later today), in
order to cook it for a while at the main tree before merging it.

It would be nice if you can ask those users to test it asap, in order to get it
tested during this week. Otherwise, we'll need to postpone this to 2.6.31.
