Probably this is caused by the same offending commit. So make sure you
have the revert of the offending commit:

commit 5593530e56943182ebb6d81eca8a3be6db6dbba4
Author: David S. Miller <>
Date:   Fri May 17 12:15:05 2019 -0700

    Revert "tipc: fix modprobe tipc failed after switch order of
device registration"

    This reverts commit 532b0f7ece4cb2ffd24dc723ddf55242d1188e5e.

    More revisions coming up.

A rework of the offending commit is commit 526f5b851a96 in upstream.
