Thanks for the reminder!

Please accept my apologies: I had completely forgotten about your patch.
By the time it reappeared on my radar (due to Alexandre's reply), it was
already too late for v5.13.

I have tested and reviewed your patch, great work!
I'm confident this can make v5.14, with the small nits fixed.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
