Fair enough - as I said, it more for if you/Daniel want to add it.  We
are going to use it, as some of our packaged kernels still have 0.23,
and its easier this way than to try and keep things in sync (besides,
some users update system, but not kernel for a while), and I thought
some other distro's might also find it handy.  I can however fully
understand if Daniel do not want it in the official tree.
