Reviewing the change is on my list, the patch doesn't look distro specific though ... Jonas did you open an upstream bug about the issue? If not that would be a good first step, if they review it then it makes things easier

you should add your new version of the patch upstream, also there was no uploaded to ubuntu so the status change seems buggy?
