Just out of curiosity, why did you not address your email to the author 
or committer of this patch?  Surely they would be the people in the

I had been researching this issue and did not find any useful notes on the mailing lists--hopefully this will help others if there's a copy of the response on the mailing list.

These drives [1] [2] are the ones noted as affected when used on Linux [1] plugged in directly to a Linux PC (w/USB 3.0/XHCI) and [2] when in a USB enclosure with a JMicron SATA Bridge.
