Looks like a good bet to me.  Many thanks to Leo for testing 5.8.9, and
to Danny for identifying the likely culprit.

Next, it probably makes sense to test 5.8.9 with the above commit
reverted.  Would someone like to try it?  If that works, we can avoid
the bisection, resume kernel updates, and revert this change across all
of our kernels until a better solution is found.
