That's going to be hard as the dependancy for that patch is not here in
4.4.y, and this patch itself isn't even in anything older than 4.19.y.
So why add it here to 4.4.y only?

Can you send the needed patch series to the stable@ mailing list for the
different stable trees if this needs to get into them?
