    That is how it looks today. Yesterday, the patch
    module:deal_with_alignment_issues_in_built_in_parameters.patch
    was also included and that is what caused the problem.

    No, instead the breaking patch (above) was removed from Rusty's
    linux-next series today.

    > Also, this fixup patch is no more in Rusty's series file.
    > Is that all correct now?

    Rusty has a new version of the above patch which includes the fix (I
    assume) but it is not included in linux-next today.
