Máté, would you resubmit a new patch that addresses all the problems
that Arnd is reporting in one go?

I think it's better if we toss your original patch in the tree and
rebase, ie. take the new one that fixes all issues that Arnd is
reporting. It would be good if we can sort out this before I send the
next pull request for net-next stuff.

I was afraid of fallout like this when I saw your original patch,
kbuild is always tricky.

Please Cc Arnd, Florian and me for review.

Thanks!
