You are right; the patchwork-bot clearly says that the revert was
applied to net.git as commit af7b29b1deaa ("Revert "net/sched: taprio:
make qdisc_leaf() see the per-netdev-queue pfifo child qdiscs""), but
the revert never made it to stable.

OTOH, the original patch did make it to, and still is in, linux-stable.
I have backport notification emails of the original to 5.4, 5.10, 5.15, 5.19.

Greg, Sasha, can you please pick up and backport commit af7b29b1deaa
("Revert "net/sched: taprio: make qdisc_leaf() see the per-netdev-queue
pfifo child qdiscs"") to the currently maintained stable kernels?

Thanks.
