I normally encourage people to rely on LWN for everything, of course -
even the articles that Jake writes :) But that *was* four years ago; a
lot of things change in the kernel in that much time.

Out of curiosity, I looked back at the old thread and the article did,
indeed, accurately match the API proposed at that time. The order of those
arguments got switched at some later point.

The moral of the story: when in doubt, check the source.
