It should be an interesting patch for several platforms. We are right in
the middle of wrapping up the 7.2 release, and the concern is in
reviewing the code and ensuring that it has no side effects on other
platforms.

If this were understood to be a simple patch to get a platform running
on 7.2, then it would go into the tree right now. Since it is likely
more complicated than that (have you posted it yet?), it will certainly
need more discussion to get in.

I'm willing to go either way, and if someone were to verify a
significant performance boost for, say, Linux with the patch enabled
then it would likely get more immediate interest.
