To the best of my knowledge this is just a clean up, no changes in
behavior are present.

The only reason I can see to backport this is so that later fixes could
be applied cleanly.

So while I have no objections to this patch being backported I don't see
why you would want to either.

This patch along with the next one came in as a dependency for
a8c715b4dd73c ("ARC: mm: SIGSEGV userspace trying to access kernel
virtual memory").
