I think you can do:

@@ -797,11 +797,7 @@ static int __buffer_migrate_page(struct address_space *mapping,
        if (rc != MIGRATEPAGE_SUCCESS)
                goto unlock_buffers;

... but maybe there's a subtlety to the ordering of the setup of the bh
and setting PagePrivate that means what you have there is a better patch.
Anybody know?
