This patch is going to be a prerequisite for the actual fix so you
probably should write here:

Cc: stable@...r.kernel.org # prerequisite for <patch name>

or better yet do a separate backport/submission to stable@ once those
have been upstreamed.

teardown_workarea_map() is a better naming counterpart to
build_workarea_map().
