No worries, Philip did a much better work than I did at explaining the issue.
In fact, at the beginning I also thought that was an user-space problem until

And I really appreciate. It's much better to go back and forth on patches than
having an unstable interface that causes regressions between kernel releases.

I've posted a v2 that addressed Philip's comments. Hopefully this should be in
