I was just about to ask why this had not been merged into 4.9. Spent a
while searching archives for any discussion to explain its absence, but
couldn't find anything. Also watched your kernel-recipes talk...

BTW, this also seems to be missing from 4.4 branch, although it was
merged for 3.16 (per https://lore.kernel.org/stable/?q=Postpone+HCI).

I gather that the usual rule is that a fix must be in newer versions
before it can go into older ones. Or at least, some patches were
rejected on that basis. If this is in fact the policy, perhaps it could
be added to stable-kernel-rules.rst ?
