    So here I am wondering what effect this bug has upon our users, so I
    can decide which kernel versions should be fixed. Jason didn't tell me
    so I went to read the description of clear_tfile_check_list(). After a
    brief chuckle, I stopped.

    I then found Yurij's original report, so I know what's going on. But I
    still can't write your changelog because I don't know whether this is a
    regression and if it is, which patch caused the regression.

    Wanna help out here please?
