Our sync is currently broken in that regard, since it'll wait for too

That's the same patch you posted two weeks ago and on which Linus
commented he thinks it is broken. He also proposed another, simpler
patch (included below) which I'm running for a few days and which
fixes the sync problem for me.
I've tried the "simpler patch" on my system and it makes no difference for me.
