Patch (2) ("tcp: make TCP_USER_TIMEOUT accurate for zero window
probes") is indeed conceptually independent of (1) but its
implementation depends on the icsk_probes_tstamp field defined in (1),
so AFAICT (2) cannot be backported further back than (1).

Patch (1) fixes a bug in 5.1:
Fixes: 9721e709fa68 ("tcp: simplify window probe aborting on USER_TIMEOUT")

So probably (1) and (2) should be backported as a pair, and only back
as far as 5.1. (That covers 2 LTS kernels, 5.4 and 5.10, so hopefully
that is good enough.)
