That one does not revert cleanly, the line in questions seems to have
been removed a bit later.

Reject is:

That one reverted cleanly. I am now running the new kernel on the
affected machine, and I think that a second machine has joined the
market of being affected.

Would this matter on the host only or on the guests as well?
