:-) My intention was for sure not to upset anybody.

Just to reiterate, the point of patch is simple, there was a change in behavior in the system call from one kernel version to the other. As I mentioned, I agree that the userspace could use other means to achieve the same, but still the system call behavior has changed.

I agree. I would prefer to understand here what is the technical reason not to accept these patches other than "use other system calls".
