I still do not understand what this means and how it is related to the
patch below, it may be clear to you, it is not to me, at all.

Fixes: 4a9b0933bdfc ("PCI: hv: Use device serial number as PCI domain")

I asked you an explicit question. Commit above was added for a reason
I assume. This patch implies that kernel has been broken since v4.11
which is almost a year ago and nobody every noticed ? Or there are
systems where commit above is _necessary_ and this patch would break
them ?

I want a detailed explanation that highlights *why* it is safe to apply
this patch and send it to stable kernels, commit log above won't do.

Thanks,
Lorenzo
