Hello!

Originally this issue was discovered exactly in v4.14 (non-Android),
and the fix was developed for that version and later forward-ported to
latest mainline 5.13. So, indeed, it makes sense to apply the fix
to stable versions (after it has been merged to mainline).

I'm submitting the same patch, back-ported to stable/linux-4.14.y.
It can also be applied to linux-4.19.y. While original 5.13 fix is
applicable to linux-5.10.y.

Thanks!

Best regards,
Andrew Gabbasov
