    Commit 88baf3e85af72f606363a85e9a60e9e61cc64a6c:

    "[PATCH] fix floppy.c to store correct ro/rw status in underlying gendisk"

    causes an annoying side-effect. Upon first write attempt to a floppy I get

    $ dd if=bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k
    dd: writing `/dev/fd0': Operation not permitted
    1+0 records in
    0+0 records out

    Any successive attempts succeed without problem. Confirmed that backing
    out the patch fixes it.
