So this fix is not in 2.6.38?
It was committed before 2.6.38-rc6 was released,
and I would have thought it appropriate for 2.6.38 :(
Anyway I guess that we now have to assume that there
can be 2.6.38 kernels in the wild with this issue,
even if the stable branch does get the fix soon.

As for 2.6.39, I guess we can assume it's OK,
and ignore the rawhide aberration for a while.
