Well spotted!  Amazing I missed that!

Will fix it in the upstream kernel.  I don't think it's worth doing a special patch for Fedora, but it should hopefully work its way through when the Fedora kernel gets updated later.

Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2012-05-02 15:31:14 UTC
Patch done.  It will work its way through the system in due course.
