Yes because those trees needed that series. Also, 3.18.y is barely
alive, if you need to rely on this kernel tree for a device, you are
already maintaining it yourself, right?

What is "A-34624167"?

Again, do you have a v4l2 device that uses this interface that needs
these fixes? In looking at the 3.18.y tree, that's a very small list of
devices that are very old and rare from what I remember.

And if you do have such a device, can you just move to 4.4.y instead?
If you need these patches on 3.18.y, I'll be glad to apply them if you
provide a backported series that you can verify work for you.
