The author of the patch acknowledged that the patch applies to kernel
version 5.10.y asking me to send it out to the stable mailing list. I
did it, but I did not receive an answer. I tried to peek upstream, but
again no answer.
I noticed in  this: "Cc: sta...@vger.kernel.org # v5.15+"
The post on marc.info (try to use lore.kernel.org links as that works easier
for most people) seems to be posted to the 'linux-kernel' list, which I
*think* is not the same as 'sta...@vger.kernel.org'.
So I would suggest to try again by sending it to stable.vger.k.o with explicit
mention of kernel 5.10.
GKH is a busy man so I recommend to take your time to construct an email which
is as short as possible, but still contains all the info needed to evaluate
I would recommend to mention the following things:
Commit ID in 5.15 = 3640cdccbe75b8922e5bfc0191dd37e3aaa24833
Link to post in which the patch author said they'd ACK it for 5.10:
In your mail make sure the link doesn't break over 2 lines like it does above.
Just a feedback.
Thanks for your tips.
Greg Kroah-Hartman backported the patch into Linux 5.10.166 .
Therefore it will hopefully land in the next Debian stable point release
when it will be released.
I would like to thank Salvatore Bonaccorso who helped me to explain Greg
the request for backporting the patch:
