Well I did ask Dave if he wanted me to supply a backport, see
https://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=155440061002032&w=2 - I just thought
sending that directly to you was the natural thing to do. Certainly
wasn't trying to circumvent process, just haven't done any backports for
the net tree before :)

Actually, looking at the log again now, I see that I got my versions
mixed up, and the backport patch is also needed for 5.0... so I guess
I'll just (re-)submit that to Dave to put into his stable queue...
