Yes, really sorry about that and thanks for going to the effort of
bisecting. There is a patch here:

which is applied to linux-next as commit
a9e6d44ddeccd3522670e641f1ed9b068e746ff7, and is tagged for stable,
though I've just noticed the stable email address is incorrect... I'll
make sure it gets applied to the 4.15 stable branch though as soon as
I notice its merged.
