As the pull request's comment says, we do need the per-arch asm-prototypes.h
patches. I've just checked on x86: still broken with current mainline,
works with my patch from 20161102121427.10103-1-kilobyte@xxxxxxxxxx;
I suspect the arm counterpart (patch by Arnd Bergmann) is also needed
(you just commented on that thread).

A true bird-watcher waves his tail while doing so.
