You've haven't taken the ones that I outlined in, so I'm happy that
those could be prevented. I'm identifying another patch here that is
pending in -mm that obviously violates the stable kernel rules and I don't
believe it should be annotated in a way that you'll scoop it up later.

The patch in question hasn't been tested by anybody and I don't think you
want such things to ever be merged into a stable kernel series.
