I don't see how this one fits this criteria from
Documentation/stable_kernel_rules.txt :

...
- It must fix a real bug that bothers people (not a, "This could be a
problem..." type thing).
...

As I see it, this patch is quite trivial and does not fix any "real problem".
How come this is suitable for -stable?

I have no objections to the patch "as such", I just don't think it
makes sense for -stable.
