Maybe I was confusing on IRC. There are two sides to this. For us (Ubuntu) its
good to know about the DKMS side and we need to make sure how to handle the
removal of it later.
For Dmitry that information is not that interesting (not to say useless ;)). But
he needs to be cc'ed on the mail that needs to e sent to stable at kernel.org to
let this fix be picked up for stable kernels (if this sounds reasonable to
Dmitry of course). We believe its useful stable material, but his is the final
call. Greg (==stable at kernel.org) prefers upstream commits that have a Cc: to
stable in the s-o-b area, but for promotions like this it helps to send him a
git format-patch style patch that has the

commit f110b24e28f36620f63dab94708a17c7e267358 upstream

added to the top of the description and the patch being cc'ed to the s-o-b list
(in that case only one line).
