Sorry, I didn't explain this well enough. The patches you have queued
will fix this for the next 5.5 branch.

This patch should to be applied to the stable branches to fix the issue
in older branches. Although I knew the To: had to be to, I wasn't sure how that worked with the EDAC
reviewers. This was a weird situation where I couldn't fix the upstream
because it had already been fixed a different way.

Meng sent me the notification and the patch with a SOB so I put Meng
first in the order.

Sorry for the confusion,
