@Rafael: Can you please add following while applying the patch ?

Cc: <stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> # v4.4+

Somehow git send-email wasn't working properly for me as it was trying
to cc stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx#v4.4+ and that was failing. I tried lots
of options including suppress-cc but nothing worked :(
