Sure.

To be clear, I actually tested the patch in your linux-next branch,
which turned out to be a little different in that you have fixed the
problem Igor raised here.

I'll ask reporters to test on a stable tree with the following two
patches on top:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/2812951/ (expose OSI version)
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/2827793/ (your updated patch)
or your linux-next branch, whichever they like.
