Odd that it was merged into 3.16, perhaps it was done there because some
earlier patch added the problem? I say this as I do not think this is
relevant for the 4.4.y kernel, do you? Have you tried to apply this
patch there?

No, that's not why this was rejected. I don't know why it didn't end up
in 4.9.y earlier, but for 4.4.y, it was not added there as I do not
think it actually is relevant (see above.)
