Thanks for update, I failed to understand from the thread though what decision was actually applied, I will look at the patch itself.
I've tried to install Mail::Address and it fixes the actual address, but it appends the # 4.4+ suffix into the name
as also mentioned in the thread, which doesn't fit the stable rules doc.

So far I've fixed the particular issue with the simple substitute above, till the real fix is released.

Maybe the stable kernel maintainers should also be pulled into the conversation.
