That patch was merely a revert of a prior patch, it did not "do"
anything new at all :)

What do you mean "removed"?  It was a revert of a prior patch, as this
patch was reported to cause real problems.

Do you want me to add it back, and then add another patch?  If so, can
you please send the requested patches to stable@kernel.org so I can do
it?
