BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1850540

Helping an administrator understand this issue and how to deal with it
requires more text than achievable in a kernel error message. Let's
clarify the issue in the Ubuntu wiki, and have the kernel emit a link
to it.

I've submitted a similar change upstream:
Should it get merged, we should consider replacing this patch with that one.
Otherwise, it is probably safe to drop this SAUCE patch after focal.
