That is what I did suspect that some other patch this one depends on
was not backported.

What the better strategy (backport missing parts or revert) depends
on how easy it is to backport to v5.4.y.

I am happy with either solution. It is just simpler for me to post
my workaround for the compile issue.

In v5.5 and v5.6 there is also no problem. Just v5.4 starting with v5.4.49.

BR and thanks,
