The patch is entirely in AFR, so in addition to Pranith, which specific 
maintainers would you like a review from?

I don't think there is any risk in taking the patch in. The bug 
) was raised by Ubisoft on 3.8. I can set a need-info on the BZ to see 
if they would be willing to test it out. If they can, and find the fix 
to be working, can you take the patch in?
