This sounds very positive and hopefully will make a difference to a lot of
people when it gets into the released kernel.  I will be keeping an eye out
for these patches in the test kernels and will try to test before release
likely via the [testing] arch repo if I can find time to do it. I have not
built kernels in a while but if I have time I may build a test kernel
before a kernel with the patches reaches arch linux [testing]. I will look
forward to seeing this come to fruition.
