Thanks, 
I tried the version of the 3 April and the new version of yesterday.
I applied the patches in the order provided by the "series" file, used
the standard fedora .config, but on both the versions I got this
compilation error:

  CC [M]  drivers/md/dm-log.o

I am missing something?

My temporary workaround was to check the number of returned arguments:
