Thanks, the size two patches for the kernel (size check) are kinda
important. Currently userspace can easily trigger a pagefault due to
this being wrong. So maybe it's also a candidate for stable (but I don't
know too much about how stable backports work).

With best wishes,

P.S.: I also might've some patches ready in 2 weeks or so which should
resolve the g2d/userptr issues.
