Hi Mark,

Just a suggestion for future versions of the "Fix-Request Process":
 - I'd think that for port-specific patches (like this one), the Porting Lead should be consulted as the expert on this part of code base. 

Maybe Dalibor is the representative of all of the Porters, but you have this funny situation where Andrew has to ask Dalibor to review, who will likely defer back to Andrew.

Just a thought!
