For a patch to be picked up by stable, it first needs to go in Linus'
tree. Currently we are working on 5.1, so any stable patches need to
go in 5.1 first. Then, once they hit Linus' tree, the stable team will
pick them and backport them in the appropriate stable tree.

But distributions can backport them as they wish, so you can make a
request to your distribution to include them ASAP. They are officially
upstream, though yet to be sent to Linus.
