Okay, thanks! Just to spell it out this means you'll need to hold off
with reposting, Andy, until net-next re-opens (which means until
5.18-rc1 kernel version is tagged by Linus, see the netdev-FAQ).

You should also drop the Fixes tag from patch 4. The change will make
it to Linux 5.19 and won't be backported to stable.
