Hi, this is your Linux kernel regression tracker speaking, this time
looking for a status update.

Was there some progress? This issue was reported 75 days ago and still
is not fixed. From the point of the Linux kernel regression tracker I'd
say: it should not take this long. Looking back at it I wonder if
'reverted the culprit and reapply later together with a proper fix'
would have been the better strategy. I wonder if that still would be the
best way forward if no patch is forthcoming soon.

Ciao, Thorsten

P.S.: As a Linux kernel regression tracker I'm getting a lot of reports
on my table. I can only look briefly into most of them. Unfortunately
therefore I sometimes will get things wrong or miss something important.
I hope that's not the case here; if you think it is, don't hesitate to
tell me about it in a public reply. That's in everyone's interest, as
what I wrote above might be misleading to everyone reading this; any
suggestion I gave they thus might sent someone reading this down the
wrong rabbit hole, which none of us wants.

BTW, I have no personal interest in this issue, which is tracked using
regzbot, my Linux kernel regression tracking bot
( I'm only posting
this mail to get things rolling again and hence don't need to be CC on
all further activities wrt to this regression.
