It may have an impact on the minimum host-kernel pre-req, but I don't have anything to test on to confirm/deny this.  My proposal would be to just chuck it over the wall and see what breaks - this is trunk after all :-)  I certainly don't think it needs its own branch.

Any breakage can be easily rectified by including new rules in an LFS-format patch, which can then be submitted upstream for their consideration.

Alright, then I guess this is one of those things you can drop in 
anytime. Thanks, Matt.
