This seems to be a bug in am-utils:

	https://bugzilla.am-utils.org/show_bug.cgi?id=612

and while we try very hard to not break existing binaries that assume some 
old broken kernel behaviour, things like system setup code that is 
outright buggy is kind of exempt from that rule. So I think in this case 
it really is a user-level issue.

I wouldn't call this a regression. It's a hard-to-trigger warning that is 
being debugged.
