At least as of yesterday, the patch had not found its way into mainline.

I am running kernel build tests in my spare time, as community service.
I do spend time before I submit a report or a proposed patch trying to
find if the problem or its fix was already posted, just to avoid the
"you dummy, this was already fixed" type feedback. However, I typically
don't repeat that if it appears that the original report or submission
was ignored. I just don't have the time to do that.

So, no, I did not see the patch in your tree. Sorry for the noise.
I'll refrain from reporting problems on sparc to avoid such noise
in the future. I'll definitely no longer send out reminders.
