    Hi, thanks for the fix. Several comments:

    1. I've removed the huge oops from the description - it is not very
    helpful and not worth having.
    2. It is usually a good idea to CC the author of the commit causing the
    regression.
    3. For regressions like this it is a good idea put the stable tree tag.

    I've added

    Cc: stable@kernel.org [3.2+]

    (git tag --contains c797533 gives the version)

    and pushed to the l2-mtd.git tree, thanks!
