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
| Author: Bernhard Walle <bwalle@suse.de>

| 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.
|
| Signed-off-by: Bernhard Walle <bwalle@suse.de>
| Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

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.)
