And, in the future, if you want it to be applied to older kernels, or be
notified if it can not be, please add a kernel version number in the
stable marking:
        Cc: stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx # 4.0+
or use the Fixes: tag:
        Fixes: SHASHAHSA ("short description")
which I pick up on and let you know if the patch does not actually apply
back to the kernel that the fixes: tag was in.

hope this helps,
