Indeed you're right. I wrote the backport for 3.16(.0). However,
commit 56cc2406d68c0f09505c389e276f27a99f495cbd was marked for stable,
so it's necessary to cherry-pick the entire patch on the stable kernel
where the buggy commit was backported.

That should be, according to the stable@vger.kernel.org archives,
3.10.54+, 3.13.11.7+, 3.14.18+, 3.16.2+.
