Thanks a lot for your patch and your bugzilla entry. We will checkout code
when ASAP.

Note : providing a patch for digiKam must always be done against git/master
version, not a stable tarball.

In 6.0.0 we make important changes in API, source code directories, and
start to introduce plenty of unit tests. So your current patch cannot be
applied to git/master. See comment from Maik in your bugzilla entry.
