See http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20181217152936.GR30879@dhcp22.suse.cz. I
believe nobody is simply using gigantic pages and hotplug at the same
time and those pages do not seem to cross cma regions as well. At least
not since hugepage_migration_supported stops reporting giga pages as
migrateable.

That being said, I do not think we really need it in stable but it
should be relatively easy to backport so no objection from me to put it
there.
