FWIW, this one doesn't strike me as being needed in -stable. While it
should be safe (otherwise it wouldn't have gone upstream in the first
place), it hardly fulfills -stable's requirement that "it must fix a
real bug that bothers people". There's no hardware monitoring chip on
the SMBus on this machine, and people can easily live without detailed
memory module information.

So it's up to you, but I won't cry if you drop this patch from -stable.
