As this is a user reported regression it would qualify for 4.10, but on
the other hand quite old regression so can easily wait for 4.11 as well.
Up to you really.

But I would like to add CC stable so that this gets backported to older
releases. Is that ok?

If you are fixing a regression it's always a good idea to add the Fixes
line. Makes it easier to backport the fix.
