From the commit message [0]:

> In linux-4.20, TCP stack adopted EDT (Earliest Departure
> Time) model and this issue was incidentally fixed.

From what I can see, the EDT patchset [1] was backported to all of our branches, so we should not be affected.

Right, our 4.12-based or older kernels don't contain the buggy patch (73a6bab5aa2a), hence unaffeced, while 5.3-based or newer kernels already contain the fix.

Reassigned back to security team.
