I agree that the patch became obsolete in Ubuntu unless someone tries
running the package on a very old kernel, which may happen in case of
some SoC systems. For example this SoC is still shipping but it uses a
kernel based on v3.4: http://linux-
sunxi.org/Linux_Kernel#Kernel_versions

Dropping the patch can also cause failure on systems passing -e as an
option thus we may need to keep the -e option at least as a noop for
some time.

Because of the reasons above I kept the patch for the merge and I think
it would be reasonable to keep it.
