There's a brief note below the commit message that explains why I'm not
sure if there's a need to backport:

So the bottom line is that I have no evidence that this fixes any real
issue, hence I'm not sure if it's worth bothering the stable kernel
maintainers with it.

While at it, adding Tuomas who wrote the original probe order fix.

you don't have it in your inbox:
