As I just discovered, Fedora Rawhide ships release candidates configured
with a lot more debugging options set than it ships final releases. So,
sadly, this didn't get fixed in v2.6.39. It just didn't show up because
one or more configuration options weren't set while they used to be set
in the preceding release candidates kernels.

It doesn't really matter anymore, but that one was actually already
included in v2.6.39-rc5.
