Note that this was all due to

https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190930161205.18803-2-johan@kernel.org

which fixed a PM bug due to an API change that was backported to stable.

I considered it comparable to a documentation fix to make sure that the
template driver matched the new API, hence the stable tag.
