Ok, I'll bubble up the status to the CGL PoC.  Since HPI isn't something
that exist in distributions just yet, I can see where this would fall
into a low priority for LTP people.  I have never submitted a patch to
LTP before, but I would guess that following a similar procedure to LKML
where you periodically resend the patch (with RESEND) in the title will
get results. 

hmm... could you also check the patch into some place in the test suite?
