    Argh, went to "cancel" that previous msg and retry when I realized you meant it was
    with *your* patch installed, managed to send it anyhow..

    I wonder if the only reason it's working for you is because gcc is doing
    some tail-recursion magic on the kcalloc() call (which calls to __kmalloc),
    which just happens to make it work, and if the tail-recursion wasn't happening
    it would be busticated.
