Well, we'd drop the new #include line also, since it would be
pointless without the kmemleak_ignore().

End result: there would be nothing left. Better not to merge it at all.

It's easy enough to backport, and just say "done differently upstream
in commit 80424b02d42b ("efi: Reduce the amount of memblock
reservations for persistent allocations").

The stable tree doesn't require that the *same* commits be upstream,
it only requires that the fixes be upstream and Greg&al want a pointer
to the upstream fix just so that they know they're not fixing
something that might still be broken upstream.

See for example (just random googling)

which shows that "fixed differently upstream" case and points to why.
