SubjectRe: PATCH 1/1] AX.25: Close socket connection on session completion

Hello David,

Unless I'm doing something wrong, it seems this patch has only been
applied to the newest

Git/linux-stable$ git tag -l --contains

How can we get this critical fix applied to the other stable kernel
versions? I would really hate
to depend on all the various Distro packagers to miss on picking this up
as this is a critical
toxicity fix.
