1/2 is supposed to propagate to older kernels and needs to change as 
posted here in v5 (assuming that this does indeed fix what the build bot 
was complaining about). 2/2 also changes. A fix on top of v4 would fix 
2/2 but won't apply cleanly to 1/2 as cannot easily propagate to older 
kernels. Is that what we want? Why can you not remove v4 from your queue 
and replace it with v5?
