Thanks for the update Haiyue. That may be true in the future, but not at
the moment. The patch is just submitted yesterday, so I don't know how
long it will take to filter through to all the distro kernels (and users
to update).

I think it's still worth to take this patch now in 18.11. I will wait
until this afternoon in case anyone has reasons not to.

thanks,
Kevin.
