Patch checked in.  In this case, I was just slow to respond.

For cpu-specific stuff, in most cases, I wait for experts/users of the 
platform to discuss and arrive at consensus to ensure a cpu-specific 
change for one variant doesn't break another.  If there is someone who 
has historically made good contributions, I usually take their patch if 
no one pipes up.
