I was pinging about the bit I was quoting, i.e. whether the Oops in
the cover letter was #14 indeed. Also, since Nick said he wanted to
get this ASAP through compiler-attributes, I assumed he wanted it to
be in 5.3, but I have not seen the independent patch.

Since he seems busy, I will write a better commit message myself and
send it to Linus next week.
