I understand that. But if the original patch has an issue, fixed by the
subsequently submitted one, then 2.6.18 (and other pre-.28 forward
ported kernels that would make use of the original patch) supposedly
also suffers from it, and hence also would need a respective fix.

It is btw. not clear to me whether this second patch is supposed to
address the problem you reported on March 16th, or whether that
issue is still awaiting debugging/resolution.
