As far as I can tell and if I'm not mistaken, the fix is already identified and is included in 4.9.86. I've started working on it for Stretch, and at one point it will be uploaded to -proposed-updates for inclusion in the next point release (9.5). When it's done I'll probably ask you to try a test kernel to make sure it's really fixed. Regards, -- Yves-Alexis
