Thanks, I committed the change.
Thanks, I would also like to request this fix to be backported to stable branches. Should I send a formal request, or is this email enough?
Ideally I would like to see it applied to 1.9, 1.8 and 1.7.5.
Gerd maintains the stable trees.
cherry-picked into 1.9-stable branch.
I don't know Gerd's thoughts on supporting older stable branches, but I can say that the build changed significantly after 1.7.5 and it would require more than a simple backport of this patch.
It's just one stable branch atm, and I can't see a good reason to maintain multiple stable branches. seabios rarely has disruptive changes and is supposed to be backward compatible, so just updating to 1.9.x should work (if it doesn't it is most likely a bug).
