Strangely, this commit causes a regression in Linus's tree right now.

I can't really figure out what the regression is, only that this commit
triggers a "large Android system binary" from working properly. There's
no kernel log messages anywhere, and I don't have any way to strace the
thing in the testing framework, so any hints that people can provide
would be most appreciated.

thanks,
