Hi Emmel, will these patches find their way into upstream source in
due time? I am wary of fixing stuff that should be taken care of

I just had a look into this and none of the patches seem to
work with latest stable 1.2 release unless I'm missing something.
There is a series file which states the patches work against a GIT
commit. Perhaps they will work in the next release?
