Absolutely, against next-20120214, which contained commit

91c6cc9b5c216bd067f9af2cc64fcbe190755865

which changed the names of those fields from "flush*" to "invalidate*".
I am the author of that commit but it is pulled through Konrad Wilk
(cc'ed). Perhaps Konrad's pull succeeded in next-20120214 but
failed in next-20120215?

Kernel.org seems to be down so I can't see if that commit is
in next-20120215 but if it is not that would likely cause
the above errors.

Hmmm... moving target. I'm trying to get in touch with Konrad
to see if we can determine what is going on.

The good news is that there seems to be an increasing number
of people contributing to and building things on top of
cleancache/frontswap stuff. The bad news is that it is difficult
to avoid ordering dependencies that affect -next. My apologies
and if you have any dependency-savvy processes that would solve
this that we are not using, please let me/us know.
