Seems Sean already fixed that one, and it was lost in the git review
process (with patches going back and forth). I added it again as a
separate patch, and now the unit tests are now ok. It just passed the
gating tests! :)

Cheers, and thanks to Sean and everyone else for the help, hoping to get
this series approved soon,
