The patch looks correct to me, but we are very late in this release
cycle, and I fear there is a chance of introducing some regression. The
issue addressed here is present since quite some time, I suggest to
postpone this fix to the beginning of the next release cycle.

Please, repost this patch after that 6.1 is released, thanks! (And feel
free to add my Acked-by).

Paolo
