It works for both mainline and RT kernel. The folks just reproduced in their RT
environments.

This patch somehow hasn't got maintainer's reply, so not merged yet.

And OK, I'll resend the patch.

This is the same way as my v1

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/3b4aa4cb-0e76-89c2-c48a-cf24e1a36bc2@kernel.dk/

which was not what the maintainer wanted.

OK. Now that the maintainer comments as such we can use it accordingly,
though I still got the feeling that the function name and the type of the return
value don't match.
