Oh, and since I didn't react initially, let me react now that Andrei
found a bug here: why was this patch auto-selected for 5.5 stable in
the first place?

It wasn't really a fix, and there's no Fixes: tag or stable tag in
there. Yeah, there's a reference to an old commit, but that one isn't
even a kernel commit.

Yeah, the performance improvements are quite nice if you hit the case
this matters for, but still..
