No please, i still want to review properly the oneline ie making sure
that it will not change any of the existing use of FAULT_FLAG_TRIED
I am finishing a bunch of patches myself so i am bit short on time right
now to take a deeper look but i will try to do that in next few days :)

In anycase i will review again your next posting.

Cheers,
Jérôme
