Oh, via Tejun's tree. Right, when I checked mmotm there was no problem.

I'd prefer to leave it as one patch, so even the "future proof" part
of the fix goes into 3.7 and stable. But your point is that you have
already seen the future, and it forks in a slightly different direction!

to resolve. Perhaps if I hold off on splitting them, and see if akpm
barks at me or not :)
