And as it stands, it won't be, because stable@vger.kernel.org was not
Cc'd. "Typo" in the subject makes it sound like a trivial and minor
change. "Fix module loading" would probably have made it clearer that it
fixes a real issue.

Guillaume, if this bothers you, please write to stable@vger.kernel.org
and kindly ask them to consider including this commit in future stable
releases.
