Might make sense to revert the buggy commit(s) until then? It's pretty easy to reliably trigger crashing / hanging kernel tasks at the moment, all it takes is the possibility to add a basic filter to a virtual net device (so it might be possible in restricted environments like containers as well..).

The original LP entry for which the backport from 4.11 happened is tagged with a CVE, but it's not obvious to me how that commit and the referenced CVE ID are related?
