Yes, as soon as the next merge window opens. The leak only shows up
when you mount and unmount a filesystem, which under normal
circumstances doesn't happen a huge number of times on most systems.
By the time it showed up it was late enough in the 2.6.31-rcX series
that I figured it was better to wait until the next merge window. I
didn't consider it a high priority bug.
