4d071c3 and adfdf85 were pushed to separate trees (pci and drm) and the
corresponding drm pull request from Dave will only be sent to Linus by
this Sunday.

Yes, the fix is needed for v4.8, I forgot to add the tag for this to
4d071c3 and added the wrong 4.10 tag to adfdf85 (in confusion thinking
that I need to care only about stable releases and not longterm ones as
shown at https://www.kernel.org) :/

I'll resend the two patches with the correct tags once both patches are
in Linus' tree.
