Haven't tried applying them to 4.2.1 but there hasn't been changes in
the device handling code since the release, so I would say that you
should be able to apply them without much problem.

If you prefer I can also publish the patches as a branch in my local git
repo, so you can fetch them easily (that will be based on top of -unstable)
