I'll drop it, thank you.

Usually it's the case that I check for fixes/reverts once I compile the
series, and again right before I queue it up to a stable tree. In
between fixes and reverts tend to sneak in just like in this case.

In general, I also check the -rcs for fixes and reverts during their
review window, so while sometimes we send out mails with patches that
have a fix or revert upstream, they rarely make it into a released
stable kernel.
