    hey Chris,
    Backports to 2.6.18 need to fix bugs of >= important severity. At
    first glance this looks like 'normal'. If you believe a greater
    severity is warranted, please file a bug and provide the
    justification.

    Another option is to make sure this gets into the 2.6.23 tree (if it
    isn't already), which would make it a candidate for etch and a half:
