    As I just discovered, Fedora Rawhide ships release candidates configured
    with a lot more debugging options set than it ships final releases. So,
    sadly, this didn't get fixed in v2.6.39. It just didn't show up because
    one or more configuration options weren't set while they used to be set
    in the preceding release candidates kernels.

    It doesn't really matter anymore, but that one was actually already
    included in v2.6.39-rc5.
