Not really. It is a terrible idea and results in the opposite of what I would
call a "stable" release.

Anyway, turns out the offending commit is 14c73bd344d ("powerpc/vcpu: Assume
dedicated processors as non-preempt"), which uses static_branch_unlikely().
This function does not exist for ppc in v4.19.y and v5.4.y. Thus, the _impact_
of the error in v4.19.y and v5.4.y is the same as in mainline, but the _cause_
is different. Upstream commit 14c73bd344d should not have been applied to
v4.19.y and v5.4.y and needs to be reverted from those branches.
