Are you saying that the two patch conflict? If not, can someone please
verify that both together are safe? Or is your patch a superset?

Either way, I can't really test these patches since I don't have
removable media devices, so I'd prefer if someone else nurses this
into Linus' tree (i.e. test it, call for testing and feed it to Linus
until it goes in).
