I want to flag this patch (commit 5c7ed4385424 "HMAT: Skip publishing
target info for nodes with no online memory")
for -stable to cleanup a spurious WARN_ON:

WARNING: CPU: 7 PID: 1 at drivers/base/node.c:191 node_set_perf_attrs+0x90/0xa0
CPU: 7 PID: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 5.3.6-100.fc29.x86_64 #1
RIP: 0010:node_set_perf_attrs+0x90/0xa0
Call Trace:
? do_early_param+0x8e/0x8e

? hmat_parse_subtable+0x55a/0x55a
? do_early_param+0x8e/0x8e
do_one_initcall+0x46/0x1f4

Do you mind if I forward to stable@, or do you collect ACPI patches to
send to stable@?
