...Btw, of course you have to be right, and I should find this in max.
12 days yet, if I'm as smart as I hope. But as for now, I really can't
see any meaningful difference between this "buggy" SKB_WITH_OVERHEAD
version and 'generic' 2.6.20.

There is also a tiny doubt, how this all could influence 2.6.21-rc4,
which seems to be 'generic' here as well. I guess it has to be some
git issue... the more so, as I can't see there this other (bisected)
patch as well?! Then, of course, this could be my sight issue - but
then these 12 days are definitely not enough...
