I don't believe that it would be a good idea to bring back this patch to kernels older
than 4.15. These strings do activate some extra features in Windows and some BIOS
ASL has been written to only activate them when the newer Windows versions are
detected. I have no concerns bringing them to 4.15 though.

Bringing them back to stable may introduce other problems that requires backporting
additional driver changes too.
