[ Upstream commit 05dd7da76986937fb288b4213b1fa10dbe0d1b33 ]

This patch is not desirable for stable, for 5.4 and 4.19 (it was already flagged by autosel back in April. Not sure why it's showing again now)

Hey Fred,

This was a bit of a "lie", it wasn't a run of AUTOSEL, but rather an
audit of patches that went into distro/vendor trees but not into the
upstream stable trees.

I can see that this patch was pulled into Ubuntu's 5.4 tree, is it not
needed in the upstream stable tree?
