You shouldn't need the revert on 4.20.

In 4.20 we changed how MSR_TM_ACTIVE() is defined, which means commit
6f5b9f018f4c ("powerpc/tm: Unset MSR[TS] if not recheckpointing") should
build fine on 4.20.

For 4.19 and earlier MSR_TM_ACTIVE() is different and that's what's
causing the build error.

I have a fix queued in my fixes tree and will push it to Linus in the
next few days.

cheers
