No, you had a different tree that got merged into linux-next, that
made it an error to do ACCESS_ONCE() on a structure.

The thing I merged didn't actually have that final commit, exactly so
that things wouldn't break from missing conversions.

So that patch isn't wrong, but it also isn't exactly a required fix
until the next merge window..
