Hello,

It worked!! I can mount my filesystem now!

I pulled down 3.5 and backed out that commit, I could not quickly find
a doc to do this, so I will add how to do that below:

1. Clone Linux repo (3.5/stable as of this writing)
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git

2. List commits:
git log

3. Show a specific commit
git show 8aeb00ff85ad25453765dd339b408c0087db1527

4. How to revert the commit:
git revert 8aeb00ff85ad25453765dd339b408c0087db1527

# On branch master
nothing to commit (working directory clean)

5. Recompile, reboot, does it work?
# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 61T 17T 44T 28% /r1
# uname -a
Linux p34 3.5.0 #1 SMP Sun Aug 12 09:42:41 EDT 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Yes!

CC: Greg to see if this can be backed out for 3.5.2?

Justin.
