Kudos (and a healthy chuckle here) for handling kernels at least through 9.X. At 
roughly 3 months per sub version and 20 sub versions per major version, we 
should be good for about 25 years. Of course, if you had added a "1" to the 
string, the fix would be good for infinity. At my age, it does not make 
difference. :)
