Hello all,

Apologies on the necromancy here, but I finally did find the patches (after
wrestling with the fact that I can't "see" the patch tracker website for
some reason... is it still live?) that created it. The patches are hosted
on Debian's git for packages[0]. There's some other stuff related to it one
folder up[1]. I'm not exactly sure what exactly is needed, though...
