You need to add a Fixes tag (pointing at the reverted change), 
and a CC: stable tag. Here's an example of a well formatted fix:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/netdev/net.git/commit/?id=02d5fdbf4f2b8c406f7a4c98fa52aa181a11d733

When you repost make sure you use get_maintainers on the patch file, 
to catch all reviewers. And put [PATCH net v2] ncsi: Revert...
as the subject.
