I think I can revert changes myself.

pavel@amd:/data/l/linux-next-32$ git show
90fb702791bf99b959006972e8ee7bb4609f441b | git apply -R

pavel@amd:/data/l/linux-next-32$ git show
d7a8c5c78d37500346c25cc8887ed2c3fda8ed4d | git apply -R

pavel@amd:/data/l/linux-next-32$ git show
90fb702791bf99b959006972e8ee7bb4609f441b | git apply
pavel@amd:/data/l/linux-next-32$

...and the oops is back:

Bad Linus!
