42bf8be378270f85ca926452ec473e65ea26d94b is where vfs.git #work.__copy_in_user is
119d0312c766773ca3238b9d926077664eed22be is what mentioned in the pull request
and that's where the local branch is.

OK, force-pushed, should propagate in a few. I wonder how I'd missed the warning
spewed by git request-pull - it did produce one...
