Hi,

Upstream commit 05dd7da76986937fb288b4213b1fa10dbe0d1b33 doesn't really
need to go to stable (any of 4.19, 5.4 and 5.5). While it's probably
safe, the patch replaces a refcount leak by another one, which makes
sense as part of the full series merged in 5.6-rc1, but isn't terribly
useful standalone on the current stable branches.
