Hi!
Ok, let me take a look at the series. But... could you provide some
kind of explanation of what these are and why you want them in -cip?

These are not usual "hardware enablement" patches...
0/6 email was not part of the thread, so I missed it in the first
look.

I see it fixes sysbot report.

Do you have special loads where you are hitting these netfilter
problems? Are similar fixes needed in 4.4 / 5.10?
Would it make sense to get it fixed in -stable kernels?
We haven't been able to reproduce the issue but apparently it's being reproduced
periodically.

The offending patch doesn't appear in linux-4.4.y-cip
linux-5.10.y-cip has the fix already.

Both patches were introduced in 5.5.0-rc5
Thank you for answers.

Is there reason not to submit it to stable? You are describing it is
as a bugfix, and Greg takes those. [Advantages are a) community
review, b) less patches to maintain for us, c) bug fixed for everyone,
not just us].

Best regards,

Pavel

Thanks.
