This addition in -rc7-mm1 breaks my laptop (Dell Latitude D820, x86_64 kernel)

gregkh-driver-sysfs-fix-i_ino-handling-in-sysfs.patch

The initrd on my system does an 'lvm vgscan' to get the root filesystem
accessible. Under -rc5-mm2, this works fine. For -rc7-mm[12], it finds the disk:

sda1 is an ext3 /boot, sda2 is an LVM space covering the rest of the disk, so
we're doing well so far.

The 'lvm vgscan' fails and says 'No volume groups found, with no useful kernel
messages issued. Then we get the infamous "Kernel panic - not syncing:
Attempted to kill init!" when it can't find the root file system and we fall
off the end of the initrd.

Any ideas?
