    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).

    ...and...

    - 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.
