Subject: Re: [PATCH] bitmap: Fix optimization of bitmap_set/clear for
 big-endian machines


(I don't think I can reliably send patches from outlook; sorry for
breaking the threading)

I see where we're not incrementing the failure count ... try this patch!

Subject: Fix bitmap optimisation tests to report errors correctly
From: Matthew Wilcox <mawilcox@...rosoft.com>

I had neglected to increment the error counter when the tests failed,
which made the tests noisy when they fail, but not actually return an
error code.
