Re: [dm-devel] slab_common: fix the check for duplicate slab names



[Sorry for top-post but...]

This patch still isn't upstream.  Who should be shepherding it to Linus?

Without it we're seeing crashes on Fedora when running regression tests
that use dm-raid (dm target that wraps MD raid), e.g.:
