Hi Janis

This patch is approved, however, just a couple of comments:

My recollection is that Nelson's patch was small enough to not require a
copyright assignment.  However, it was a while ago that I last looked at
this PR.  Please use your own judgement (or ask an SC member) if an
assignment is required.

This comment just needs a bit of re-wording.  :-)
