Hi Steffen,

Sorry for the long delay. I ended up not sending my pull request for
v5.4, so the bug is not there. I have now rebased my branch
on top of v5.4-rc2 and plan to send it for the v5.5 merge window.

I have folded your bugfix into my original patch, hope that's ok with
you. Tomorrow's linux-next should be fixed.
