Hello,


The commit fixed by this patch[1] was merged in v5.1 and this patch was merged
in the mainline in v5.7 (5c72feee3e45b40a3c96c7145ec422899d0e8964).  Thus, the
issue affects [v5.1, v5.6].  I was also able to reproduce the issue and confirm
the fix works on v5.4 based kernels.

However, I couldn't find this fix in neither latest stable/linux-5.4.y, nor
stable-queue/master.  Could you please put this patch in the queue?

Thanks,
SeongJae Park
