Would you like me to make a list of bug numbers that can be closed if
we update the 3 legacy packages with these two patches and the updated
conftest.h for 173xx?

An updated 185 package with the small patch to fix 2.6.31 support would
also be handy, since we could beat the new kernel into unstable for once.
