Sure I can do that, but I completely fail to see how that's a
regression.

Unpatched 5.4-rc6:

FAIL: nptl/tst-thread-affinity-pthread
original exit status 1
info: Detected CPU set size (in bits): 225
info: Maximum test CPU: 255
error: pthread_create for thread 253 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

TBH, the futex changes have absolutely nothing to do with that resource
fail.

Thanks,

tglx
