Your template is off here.

Yes, this was the intention of the exercise :)

In v5.4.3-rt1 there is
fe18e9e08e25d ("BPF: Disable on PREEMPT_RT")

so maybe backport this across the stable kernels. Fixing it is a way
larger queue. If the intention is to keep it disabled it could be
enforced via Kconfig so it is not enabled by accident (or by using
oldconfig on a distro config which has it enabled).
