FWIW, "the fix" afaics is 7e4a205fe56b90 ("Revert "get rid of
DCACHE_GENOCIDE"") sitting 'fixes' of
git:// for more than
a week now.

I assume Al or Christian will send this to Linus soon. Christian in fact
already mentioned that he plans to send another vfs fix to Linux, but
that one iirc was sitting in another repo (but I might be mistaken there!).

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)
Everything you wanna know about Linux kernel regression tracking:
If I did something stupid, please tell me, as explained on that page.

P.S.: let me update regzbot while at it:

#regzbot introduced 57851607326a2beef21e67f83f4f53a90df8445a.
#regzbot fix: Revert "get rid of DCACHE_GENOCIDE"
