Sorry for coming in so late, I've been on an extended vacation with
little connectivity.

I'll try to better understand what's going on. I, too, am confused about
how the change would introduce the reported regression. I've only
skimmed the thread so far but it feels like there's possibly a latent
issue that the change may be uncovering on certain systems.

FWIW, we've had this patch applied to our internal kernel for a month
and haven't seen any issues.
