Only failure to do a timely release on my end, sorry about it. Don't
hesitate to ping me when this happens. The patches were cherry-picked
into the stable-2.10 branch quickly after 5.1 was released (or while in
5.1-rc cycle), but Jonathan reminded me just yesterday that I was overdue
for a release.

Indeed, I'll try to release stable tags more proactively after a kernel
version comes out in the future.
