Neat! I like the idea of this automation :)

This list includes the correct soft dependency - commit 897ab3e0c49e
("userfaultfd: non-cooperative: add event for memory unmaps") which
added an extra argument to mmap_region().

The backport to v4.9 should simply drop the last argument (NULL) in the
call to mmap_region().

Is there some way I can indicate this sort of thing in future patches so
that the automation can spot that I already know it won't apply cleanly
to a particular range of kernel versions? Or even better, that I could
indicate what needs to be changed when backporting to those kernel
