From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit a41e8f25fa8f8f67360d88eb0eebbabe95a64bdf upstream.

The networking maintainer keeps a public list of the patches being
queued up for the next round of stable releases. Be sure to check there
before asking for a patch to be applied so that you do not waste
people's time.
