The already applied patch fixes many other issues than just this one.
backporting it to stable < 3.13 turned out to not be that difficult, stable maintainers
said they can do it themselves.

Stable kernels prefer patches that are already upstream, as Documentation/stable_kernel_rules.txt states:
"- It or an equivalent fix must already exist in Linus' tree (upstream)."

There is no need for the other patch anymore, not upstream nor to stable
