I do the revert by applying a reverse patch (initially generated by a
"git revert"). That reverse patch still applies cleanly, so I have no
easy way to tell that this problem has been fixed (except by trying
without the reverse patch each day - which would add a significant cost
to my work as that patch touches linux/fs.h).

Anyway, thanks for letting me know, I will remove the reverse patch
from tomorrow.
