It would have been:
Cc: <stable at vger.kernel.org> # v5.16+
You can use "dim fixes <sha>" and it will output you the suggested tags.
But given what you say about it having no impact even in debug builds
then it's not needed. Just note that explaining the impact in the commit
message when Fixes: tag is present is very desirable in general. Without
it maintainers have a hard time assessing and highlighting important
stuff in pull requests. So I would at least ask for respin with updated
commit message explaining there is no consequence and why cc stable is
