Added for the upcoming 4.8, and to 4.7 should there be a need for a
respin.  But note that this scriptlet won't make the change around
ni_init_microcode that you made in your patchlet.  Is that needed too,
or will it work regardless?

On IRC, you also mentioned something about ath3k.  Could you please
supply more details?
