Thanks for the patch! Your subject doesn't need to end in a period. In
your commit message, I can guess why you'd want this patch, but your
commit message should include more info about why the kernel wants this
patch included. Especially since this is a user visible change and
likely a fix of a bug. Please review:

specifically:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/networking/netdev-FAQ.html#q-any-other-tips-to-help-ensure-my-net-net-next-patch-gets-ok-d

This looks like a fix, please add a Fixes tag.
