No it doesn't :-/

Grumble, it would be nice if people added which kernel a patch goes to.
I started out looking at over 200 commits to determine which should be
backported or not. I look for any stable tags first, and then read the
commit log for SHA1s that I can look for. It seems that I missed that
this commit did state which commit caused the issue, it must have
applied fine, because failed applied patches I scrutinize even more.

Oh well, I'll nuke this commit.
