Thank you, yes, that fixes it for me:
Tested-by: Hugh Dickins <hughd@...gle.com>
but hopefully akpm will just fold this into the original patch.

Hmm, tiny niggle, but I notice that has_pid_permissions() is
declared, reasonably, as bool; so wouldn't it be better for
has_perms to be declared as bool instead of int?  Hardly
worth bothering about, but if you've a mind to respin with
a corrected Subject as Al rightly suggests.
