Sorry for the confusion. This (second) patch is a cleaner fix of the 
issue that was “fixed” by the reverted commit. Then on top of it, you’ll 
have to apply Jamey’s patch, which is an independent issue+fix (which 
the old fix conflicted with). I’m not sure why it was marked 
superseeded, maybe Patchwork detecting my patch as a reply?
