If you mean a Fixes tag, this is pre-git.

If you mean a bug, well, likely yes, users now get informed. But I don't
think anyone cares ;). But who knows, maybe we will start seeing
userspace failures now (as they might not provide writable count field
-- unlikely). That's one of the reasons why I did this as a separate
commit. Let's see if are going to revert this or not...

thanks,
