The change isn't introduced by the reported commit apparently. So
there may be some mistake in the 0-Day bisection.

I am not familiar with alpha architecture. If the pte_t is always
defined as follows for alpha, the atomicity of the operation should be
OK?

typedef struct { unsigned long pte; } pte_t;
