Yeah, that's probably unusual enough that people will have missed it.

Because it really looks like the bug has been there since 4.13, unless
I'm mis-reading things. Other things have changed there since, so
maybe I am.

My gut feel is that we just need to revert that commit. It doesn't
revert clealy, but it doesn't look hard to do manually.

Something like the attached?

But we do need Tejun and PeterZ to take a look, since there might be
something subtle going on.

Everybody is probably still on well-deserved vacations, so it might be
a while. But testing the attached patch is probably a good idea
regardless.
