I think that the cc to stable should have been kept even with the
addition of the fixes tag. AUTOSEL will still most likely pick this up
(or even Chrome OS's patch bot that they now have) but the cc to stable
would have made it clear that we do need it there and the fixes tag
would have guided how far back it should go (rather than an explicit
version that is added).

Something for the future I supppose.
