Hey Corey, thanks, but I'll either have to send a new
patch or an updated patch changing these new
seq_has_overflowed() uses to 0.

There's no functional difference, but there is a logical
one. has_overflowed(), if it returns "true" (it won't here
because the first alloc seq_fs does has sufficient space)
would not retry and simply not emit anything.

Anyway, do you want a new patch or a relative patch?

sorry 'bout that, Joe
