That patch does not fix CTR mode, it just disables copying the output
IV altogether for CTR mode so the DMA corruption does not occur.

That same patch 'fixes' CBC, since CBC was never broken to begin with.
The CTS driver does not have something like the auth_tag sharing the
same cacheline with the IV, so CBC has always worked fine.

So I guess what you are after is a patch that, instead of dodging the
issue by limiting the copy to CBC, does not perform the copy at all
while anything is mapped for DMA? Then we can leave it up to the NXP
engineers to fix CTR mode.
