    Yes, the series as a whole relies on that patch. Rusty pulled the
    series from linux-next (thanks rusty!).

    I'm working on alternatives now. I can't promise to avoid architecture

    to test it myself :-). Sorry for the inconvenience caused by
    "arch-independent assembly code" that wasn't.
