I cannot say that right now, as it appears the last "bad" kernel
destroyed my distro enough that I cannot test this patch without a full
reinstall. (/root partition is busted, even after several fsck -f -y)

[ 42.501569] EXT3-fs error (device cciss/c0d0p1): ext3_free_inode: bit already cleared for inode 424649
[ 42.501721] Aborting journal on device cciss/c0d0p1.
[ 42.516101] Remounting filesystem read-only
[ 42.529563] EXT3-fs error (device cciss/c0d0p1) in ext3_delete_inode: IO failure


I'll have to do this reinstall when I am at the office, in a couple of
hours.
