I don't think so. It looks like the problem being fixed here
(clearing recv_probe when we shouldn't) was introduced at 29c4948293bf,
but was not the only place the same problem existed. 3fe68df97c7f fixed
the other occurrences of this problem, but missed the specific one added
by 29c4948293bf, which is now fixed by this patch.

In any event, both of the commits in question are old enough
that it's kind of moot, as -stable will presumably get the right thing
