I confirm, it went through the s390 maintainer tree, here is the
upstream commit already in Linus' master:

commit e24e4712efad737ca09ff299276737331cd021d9
Author: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@...ibm.com>
Date:   Wed Apr 10 12:28:41 2019 +0200

    s390/rseq: use trap4 for RSEQ_SIG
    
    Use trap4 as the guard instruction for the restartable sequence abort
    handler.
    
    Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@...ibm.com>

So you can either drop it from your end of the pull request, or Linus will
deal with the merge, as you prefer.

Thanks!

Mathieu
