The stable-kernel-rules.txt file says this:

- It must fix a real bug that bothers people (not a, "This could be a
problem..." type thing).


- No "theoretical race condition" issues, unless an explanation of how the
race can be exploited is also provided.

...and this seems to clearly violate both of those rules. I'd say we
just go with putting it in 3.4 for now, and keep it in mind if someone
comes back later and says that it's needed.
