Right thing to do. Thank you.

That is ... unexpected.

->listen() should do any ioctls, though?
and there is just kernel code talking to kernel code,
so why would CONFIG_X86_X32 matter at all?

Can you double check, please:
Is that reproducible, i.e., if you swich that CONFIG off again,
the error comes back?

(does not reproduce here... yet)
