This brings to light something I have been trying to resolve for a
little while now, but I have been finding it difficult to find the
necessary time due to competing priorities at work and in my personal
time.  While the patches in this patchset are a necessary dependency,
there are other issues which remain unresolved but which are now
public (although the problems were not buried very far in the first
place).  Further complicating things on my end is that the system with
my current work-in-progress patchset was taken offline two days ago
and my office is under renovations :/

Give me a day or two to get the patches off that system and I'll post
them here and we can start the process of kicking around solutions
that work for everyone.
