I just came to the same conclusion a few minutes ago ... i.e. this is
likely unrelated to the patchset and I just triggered it by pure
coincidence on the patched kernel.

I will keep looking into it a little bit more. Dmitry, any immediate ideas

Otherwise the series seems indeed fine and if I don't come across anything
substantial once I am done with the review, I am considering pushing it
for -next (I still have to look at quirks propagation Nikolai pointed
