Thanks for the help getting this landed. With this change being part of
Bitbake, what's the procedure for attempting to get it backported to the
final MR of Yocto 2.2? Do I just backport it to a certain maintenance
branch of Bitbake (announced somehow with a prefix on the git-send-email
subject) and it would magically pop up out the corresponding branch of poky
if accepted to Bitbake?
