I can only go by what _you_ told me earlier, namely that this works as
designed and no change is needed. If you changed your mind without telling

If you say one thing and do another, you shouldn't be surprised when
people trust you and go by what you say.

If you tell me in which kernel version this is included, I can find out
easily.
