    thanks. This patch (which was not a build fix but an infrastructure fix
    that the kexec fix in arch/x86 depended on) is well-tested as well, it
    was queued in -tip on June 10th:

    | commit 91d48fc80f22817332170082e10de60a75851640

    | bootmem: add return value to reserve_bootmem_node()
    |
    | This patch changes the function reserve_bootmem_node() from void to
    | int, returning -ENOMEM if the allocation fails.

    so it is a -stable candidate just as much as the kexec fix. (These are
    all fixes for long-standing problems so i guess it can go all the way
    back to all stable kernels that are being maintained.)

    Ingo
