Having looked a bit more through the history, I suspect that the reason
5.6 doesn't need c58c1f83436b501d45d4050fd1296d71a9760bcb - which I have
confirmed - is that ext4 was converted to the iomap infrastructure in
5.5, but not in 5.4.

I've confirmed that the repro I shared upthread triggers in
378f32bab3714f04c4e0c3aee4129f6703805550^ but not in
378f32bab3714f04c4e0c3aee4129f6703805550.
