I poked at this a bit this morning and found that if I ran generic/361
twice in a row that I'd see a failure similar to what you were seeing.
This patch seems to fix it for me.

I'll plan to flesh out the patch description and get this into -next and
eventually to Linus before the next release.

Thanks,
Jeff
