I CCed sobomax@, he committed the code in question.
Maxim, do you remember why it is always required as the comment suggests?

Maxim, Marcin noticed it isn't... some other ones (mmap and writev related)
fail now. But at least we have an idea now where to look for the error.

Anyone with an amd64 system out there and willing to test this (with
the LTP testsuite as described on
http://wiki.freebsd.org/linux-kernel)? Because this doesn't seems to be
the final fix, it isn't necessary to test this particular patch, but it
would be nice to know if there are some differences between the results
on i386 (as can be seen in the wiki) and amd64.
