That's not a very good analogy - the source is a kernel object.  A better
example would be:

linux-2.6.24-rc8:

echo foo > /tmp/1
echo bar > /tmp/2
echo foo > /tmp/1

linux-2.6.24:

echo foo > /tmp/1
echo bar > /tmp/2
echo foo > /tmp/1
sh: cannot write /tmp/1: Inalid argument

But whatever.   It used to work.  People's scripts will break.  Regression.
