It relies on infrastructure which is not present in Linus's kernel. We
should only be interested in fixing mainline 2.6.x.

Furthermore I'd like to see the direct-vs-buffered locking fixes fully
implemented against Linus's tree, not -mm. They're almost there, but are
not quite complete. Running off and making it dependent on the retry
infrastructure is not really helpful.
