In my opinion, this patch is not that critical.
Commit 1cc8e3458b51 might move unaligned(pageblock size) dma-coherent region.
And this patch will move the region back to different address which is aligned less than pageblock size.
But if you think it need to stable branch, please let me know how to add the stable tag.
