CAF fixed this back on Feb 1 in their tree, yet did not send that
upstream, or to anyone else:
	https://source.codeaurora.org/quic/la/kernel/msm-4.4/commit/?h=LV.HB.1.1.5-03810-8x96.0&id=a7a5307ee04ad349d365ad50f304605a9cd9bd0a

Feel free to rant some more, I'm going to go revert the original
upstream patch as that is half-completed, and obviously broken :(

thanks,
