Here we go...

[1] "userfaultfd: don't block on the last VM updates at exit time"

[2] "ppp: release rtnl mutex when interface creation fails"

( I was involved in... Fixes: 58a89ecaca53 ("ppp: fix lockdep splat in
ppp_dev_uninit()" )

[3] "ovl: fix working on distributed fs as lower layer"

BTW, in [1] Linus forgot to add a "CC:stable", how is this handled
when a maintainer forgets this?
Once I read something like "CC:stable # Backport to all applicable
versions". Is that "allowed"?
And yes, netdev has its own rules, so - no comments on this.
