Just for the record, that patch should have been included in
the series that I posted and this thread has spawned off.

When I say I posted, I may have done the posting, but
its just reformating if your patches, so there is really
absolutly nothing new in there.

My real aim in posting the patches in incremental form was firstly to
make it easier to see how the code is evolving.  And secondly to make
any applying and/or merging, particularly into Tony's tree, easier.
