Yes, I haven't done any copyright assignment yet but I'd be willing to
do so if someone can guide me a bit or point me to where I can find info
about what I have to do.

There are some untested and unimplemented stuff in my implementation.
If I remember correct there is no real handling of error cases which I
wanted to add so it is on par with the other security buttons
implementations.  So I'd like to work on this a bit more and provide a
more fully featured patch.  But I'm pretty busy right now with real
life, so this may take a few months as I'd need to find some time.

Nontheless I will check if I have done any changes to my provided patch
and resubmit it if I have any work pending - if you don't want to wait
for me and want to apply the patch anyway even without proper error
