see my general objection to this change (under the [PATCH 22/23]
subject), but even looking at the pure patch note that it does the flag
update incorrectly and in a bisect-boot-unfriendly way: the queue at
this point changes kernel functionality and has side-effects. The right
way to do flags updates is to first introduce them, then change things
over.
