Re-reading what I wrote, I think "the previous commit" may be ambiguous.
The original commit which introduced the bug (and which we're reverting
here) didn't include a test at all. In patch 1/2 of this series (what
I'm calling "the previous commit"), I provided a test which shows the
regression. And now this revert shows that we fixed it (by flipping from
expect_failure to expect_success).

So I think I've already done what you're asking (if I understand it

It probably would be a little easier to follow by reverting first, and
then adding in the expect_success test on top to future-proof us. But by
doing it in the other order, it was easy to see the test demonstrate the
behavior before and after the revert.
