    I hoped Al would answer, but so I have to ask again.
    What are you trying to fix with this? AFAICT module init races are still
    there, how do you want to fix them and how will this patch help?
    Rusty, could I please, please, please (with sugar on top) get an answer
    to any of my questions from you?

    bye, Roman
