Upstream asked for some basic fixes to the patch (i.e. it wasn't submitted in the needed format) before it could accept it, so I doubt it's rejected yet. And of course a distro could backport and maintain it, it's a very tiny patch, much smaller than what they normall backport. Take it up with the distros if you want this. thanks, greg k-h
