a) doesn't appear to have been Cc'd to stable@kernel.org until now
(fell through one crack)
b) there was outstanding request from greg for clarification of the
issue for 2.6.24 (fell through another crack)

Please just explicitly send the fixes to stable@kernel.org and Cc Nick.

I'm actually disinclined to take 0d71bd5993b630a989d15adc2562a9ffe41cd26d
which seems to primarily just remove the WARN_ON(), although that is
assuming it is indeed no longer triggered with just the race fix,
