Yes, I'm aware of that patch.

I'm not a real friend of out-of-tree code, especially if it replaces
*existing* code from mainline. *If* such a patch is really desirable
it should be sent to LKML and walk through the review cycle. Any
single patch differing from mainline makes debugging problems
harder, so I'm quite conservative in accepting patches to main
