Nope, sorry. rc4 has technically not been tagged yet, but especially
the serial-property stuff is too big a code change at this point
(it includes one "let's just refactor and rearrange some code"
patch which is really not rc4 material.)
Also these patches have been on the list for over a month -- if
they were 5.0-worthy there's been plenty of time for them to be
put in.

Plus the last email from Alistair on the "target/riscv: Don't set
write permissions on dirty PTEs" patch thread is a note saying
it shouldn't be applied, unless I've got confused.
