Maciej Rutecki or Rafael J. Wysocki: Could you please re-open this bug and keep it open until a mainline kernel release or release candidate is out with this fixed? Or at least until a patch for it is committed to mainline? Because although several tested patched are available, rc5 went out without this fixed and I don't see any movement on that front.
Sam Ravnborg pledged to have a more comprehensive fix for the entire class of bugs caused by symbol mis-alignment ready for the next merge window, but Steven Rostedt was supposed to get a patch for just this regression committed.
The bug hasn't been closed yet and the 'resolved' status means the issue is known and there's a working patch for it. Once a fix has been merged, the status will be changed to 'closed'.
Fixed by 07fca0e57fca925032526349f4370f97ed580cc9
But I can't seem to close this bug.
