Not amused. I don't play such games.
No, this causes a compile error for us for a build with CONFIG_MODULES=n
in combination with -Werror. The problem was backported to v5.10.y with
the merge of v5.10.28, which makes it worse because it introduced a
regression into that branch. A regression causing a compile error isn't
really improving confidence in the test coverage of stable releases.
Unfortunately there was a miscommunication internally; my understanding
was that no patch was submitted upstream.
