Yeah, I've been staring at the code, and commit:

Yeah, but it's marked as RED, which is why I thought it was a failure.

OK, so this has nothing to do with your patch set. I've tested

I'm thinking that we should get rid of xfail, as it's really confusing,
and I don't understand its purpose. But that shouldn't stop pushing
your patches.
