This commit’s child 0df36b90c47d93295b7e393da2d961b2f3b6cde4 (part of
the same bug 205719) is now enqueued for v5.4, but this one doesn’t seem
to have made it yet, perhaps because I forgot to Cc: stable@ in the
commit message. Can someone make sure this goes to v5.4 as well? Luca
previously nominated it for v5.4 here:
