Our goal in all of our work should be to upstream all changes so we
don't have to carry local patches. We do this so there's less work for
us as "distributions" when updating in the future, and so upstream can
provide support without having to look at our variant of the code.

I realise this patch is minor, but that means it's even easier to do
the correct thing.
