There's a couple of linux-kernel mailing list threads that I posted to
the bug report (see around comments 12-15) that details the issue.
There was a specific patch to fix the issue that was made more generic
but I haven't see it go into a mainline kernel yet but the author of
the patch is there, I was going to ping an email to him but haven't
had time to do so.
