These patches shouldn't change so much. I meant: was this last patch
(with previous one ie. take #3) tested the same as earlier take #3
alone? (There were warnings only, no oopses.)

BTW, here is a patch with another way of fixing this. I would be glad
if you could try this too. The previous patch should be reverted, so
we need only: "take #3", this one and these two you mentioned above.
