Well, it's too late for 5.11 for patches that weren't already in linux-next, so
you'll have to aim for 5.12.

It looks like you're asking Herbert to pull this into the crypto tree?  If he's
interested in doing that, that could work.  However lib/zstd/ isn't that
strongly "crypto-related", and it doesn't actually have a maintainer listed in
MAINTAINERS.  Perhaps another path forwards is for you to volunteer to maintain
lib/zstd/ and send pull requests for it directly to Linus?
