Yeah, and it was thought stable when we included it before, too.
I know that bugs were fixed, but that doesn't mean there aren't
more to find; we'll find out in time.  "We don't happen to know
of any bugs right now" is an insufficient metric.

This isn't in disagreement with anything Ted has said; I don't
think he was necessarily arguing for it to be included.  And,
in keeping with our modified policy of trying to stick closer
to upstream (I know, we've got the legacy of lots of patches in
our current kernel, but we don't need to make it worse) I'd want
to have seen it already in Marcelo's kernel first.  That shouldn't
be construed as a suggestion that Marcelo should include it.
