It's a rare pleasure to be presented with such a straightforward bug!

stable/longterm: well, I don't mind asking akpm to add a Cc: stable,
but don't be surprised if he prefers not: although it was a regression
back in 2.6.23, it's not a security issue, and the lack of interest
between then and now doesn't make a strong argument for it.

Andrew, if you're so inclined, please add a Cc: stable@kernel.org
to [PATCH] shmem: let shared anonymous be nonlinear again

Thanks,
Hugh
