As the commit this fixes was included in a stable release (at least 5.4.29[0],
I did not checked others - sorry) it could make sense to backport this also
to the 5.4 stable tree?

Per documentation[1], I checked the netdev and Greg's queues, but did not found
it to be included anywhere yet.

I hope I handled this request somewhat correctly, please tell me if I should
propose the backported patch more directly to the respective stable list. As is,
the patch[2] applies fine here on top of 5.4.30.

cheers,
Thomas
