I've only respun the tree on two or three occasions and that was
because I made some significant error myself and screwed up the
GIT tree somehow.

We've fixed much worse bugs than this one weeks after the changes
causing them went in, life goes on.

And the fact that it took two weeks of it being in -next before
anyone even reported it says how wide a net this particular bug
covers :-)  (hint: personally I've still never used netconsole
even one single time, and it's been around for what, something
like 6 years?)
