Thank you for your reviewing.

I talked about this with Florian Fainelli and he said that the patches
should rather pass Ralf then John, but merging would be easier when they
are passing John. I do not have a problem with both solutions and
rebasing it to an other tree is no problem for me.
John and Ralf, who wants to take these patches? ;-)
