Yes, I was confused.  I understood the explanation from vorlon that
(1) the previous version was compiled with old lkh - so the bug
#318979 was happenned, (2) but unfortunatelly new lkh has another
problem with xorg-x11, so it'll be got FTBFS again.

Looking through this bug, the problem was introduced for compat_ioctl
- the header used long type accidentally.  I'll check it more.
