I just noticed that this has been added to the "next" branch of the
security tree (and thus into the next release of linux-next).  I think
that these patches should be rearranged as in their current form, they
break bisection (since the files in this patch reference include files in
a latter patch).   We generally prefer large patches to be broken up into
logical sub patches rather than just along file boundaries.

In this case, even though it was broken up for review, it could have been
committed as one large commit (assuming that there is no sensible way to
break it up).
