Ah okay, but I still wonder how my original patch got changed on its
way... The original version on the mailinglist was not buggy.

There is no current existing stable kernel that is affected, as it went
in during the last merge window in 4.6-rc1. So no need for fixing
stable. Maybe it's still possible to fix it as the stabilisation window
is still open and 4.7 is not released yet?
