Agreed.

So given that my queued fix turns this

cache_clean
cache_off

into this

cache_off
cache_clean

for v7 only, and considering that turning this into

cache_clean
cache_off
cache_clean

(as the diff tested by Guillaume does) fixes the reported issue, it
seems like the safest option to me at this point.

Reverting both patches, one of which has been in mainline since v5.7,
seems unwise to me at this point in the cycle.
