I am still not happy with this patch.

-  You do not explain at all the dependency on commit 0c195567a8f6 and
   you should because that's fundamental, if that patch is not present
   this revert breaks the kernel as per previous discussions[1].
-  You are sending this patch to all stable kernels that contain the
   commit you are fixing - some that may not contain the commit above
   (that was merged in v4.14), you are breaking those kernels, if not
   explain me why please

You must mark the stable kernels you want this revert to be applied to

Cc: <sta...@vger.kernel.org> # v4.14+

and for kernels that do not contain the 0c195567a8f6 commit you have to
add the dependency. Please read the documentation Greg provided you in
relation to stable kernel rules.


git tag --contains

to detect in what kernel version the given commits are present.
