Did you try to discuss the back-port topic with the KSPP folks or other
key persons involved in these patches? In the ideal case, the authors
can be CC'ed, do not get annoyed by "these crazy people doing legacy
stuff", and may even do some reviews.
I would normally cc the upstream developers, but I was hesitant to do so
for CIP because this is not related to an official stable branch.
Perhaps I should ask on the KSPP list whether a cc for such feature
backports would be appreciated?

duplicate work.
Thanks for letting me know.
