After a few days of extensive testing and abuse, i’ve run into no new issues or unknowns what so ever. Everything that worked before still works now ( and a few bugs from fixed from HEAD ). 

Thus, I have gone ahead and pushed r273182 w/ Neel’s patch out to about 80 of the assorted AMD boxes in the production and dev pods that I care for. If end users see something, I’ll let you know, but I have a feeling they won’t. 

Again - Excellent work.
