I think there is a bit of confusion here. If you're referring to


as the build failure report, this is precisely my series fixes.
I sent this series to address the build break reported by Nathan.
The original patches were picked up from the "Fixes" tag automatically
which broke the build due to missing "event" parameter. This series
fixes those build issues and for sure builds fine for the affected
versions. Trust me ;-)
