Due to a customer having again trouble with this issue, I was forced to
actually spend some time testing it (and merging it to a current
kernel).  At least in my simple tests, it worked like a charm :)

I've changed your wording 'ALIAS' to the (as I think) more apropriate
'SECONDARY', and did some minor cosmetic changes to make it apply
against 2.6.12-rc2.

Dave, would you consider adding this patch to your tree?
