So given that my queued fix turns this
for v7 only, and considering that turning this into
(as the diff tested by Guillaume does) fixes the reported issue, it
seems like the safest option to me at this point.
Reverting both patches, one of which has been in mainline since v5.7,
seems unwise to me at this point in the cycle.
