The 4.15 kernel upstream has reached EOL (4.15.18 from 2018-04-19 was
the last 4.15.y release). I don't see your patches on the stable 4.15
tree, so it seems they didn't make it to the last release.
If that's the case, we can evaluate the inclusion as a SRU fix for
Bionic 4.15 kernel. For that, please open a bug report on Launchpad with
an SRU justification  and send the patches to this mailing list
following the format described here .
