Ah yes, I managed to confuse myself there. This looks all fine to me.

In any case, this is another example where we may decide to fix the
code rather than retain the request allocation on the stack (but that
is Jens's call ultimately, I suppose)

diff --git a/drivers/block/cryptoloop.c b/drivers/block/cryptoloop.c
index 7033a4beda66..5ed2167219ba 100644

or if we stick with the current change to sync:
