    Subject: [PATCH] Linux: make sure backing_dev_info is zeroed
    The afs backing_dev_info structure is allocated dynamically
    without zeroing out the contents.  In particular there's no
    guarantee that congested_fn is NULL, causing spurious oopses
    when bdi_congested in the kernel tries to call it.
