I think you may have made a mistake in the application of the patch. I
did a "git cherry-pick" of this patch onto linux-2.6.tip master and it
didn't complain, the patch itself was only different by a couple of line
numbers. Trying to apply this patch manually resulted in:

$ patch -p1 < fixes.diff
patching file kernel/futex.c
Hunk #1 succeeded at 805 (offset 3 lines).
Hunk #2 succeeded at 883 (offset 3 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 1468 (offset 10 lines).
Hunk #4 succeeded at 1611 (offset 10 lines).
Hunk #5 succeeded at 1720 (offset 10 lines).

So I think this patch should be fine. Before I wrote the patch I
checked to make sure that my branch had merged tip/master which had the
most recent futex patches from mainline.

Thanks,

Darren
