The problem is still seen in next-20160513, so it looks like the patch was not accepted.

I recently learned that arm has a special way of submitting patches. See
http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/developer/patches/ for details. If I understand correctly,
you'll have to send the patch to patches@....linux.org.uk, and it has to be formatted
correctly (eg no "[PATCH]" in the subject line, and some other information added).
I never tried it myself, so I don't really know how exactly it works.
