There's a problem because none of this is currently even in linux-next. I
think we could make a case for getting Sameer's patch at to be merged for
stable, but then we'd have to revert it in linux-next before merging your
series at All of the
issues you present in that series seem to be stable material, so why not
just go ahead with your series and mark it for stable for 3.13?
