My thoughts exactly.
Also, I realized that removing comgt would render the device requiring 
it unable to reestablish WAN connection also after sysupgrade - which is 
a no-brainer for me.
My custom builds carry a very similar patch for a few years now, and 
Arjun's patch looks very reasonable to me - maybe I shall test it in my 
builds very soon, and provide feedback, as I'd like to see it merged as 

Kind regards,
