This should also go on the "master" branch, right?  Presumably it
works with both the "old-style" and new Oxford CSP style kernel
naming.  I'm happy to cherry-pick it over to there once you've pushed
this to the new "oxford" branch, or you can do it yourself.

As long as you've tested it and found that it works, it's fine with
me.  Thank you!
