 I'm done with the changes now.  Test cases written for two branch 
handling improvements I intended to push have revealed a number of corner 
case problems which started to mount, so I decided the changes are too 
intrusive for inclusion so late in the development cycle and I will 
instead apply them on master once 2.27 has branched only.  Unfortunately 
the resulting reordering of patches required rebasing which together with 
investigating the problems with the postponed changes has led to a slip.

 Regression-tested and backported to both branches now (in case someone 
wants to package their software from 2.25; I'll let the Linux kernel 
people know).
