No comments on the real content of the patch other than you most likely
will need to write one or more testcases to show your patch is correct.
Please stick to the indentation and style of the file (surrounding code):
- 4 space indentation instead of 2 space
- curly brackets on separate lines
- there are some tabs in this piece of the code, while you're at it you
could change it to use 4 spaces instead.
