There was a request to get this in -stable. Personally I'm split with
a slight inclination towards rejecting it.
It's very nicely isolated [regression wise] but a new feature after all.

Looking at the kernel parts - just merged in 4.11 which will be out in
~2 months... around the same time mesa 17.1. Which makes me lean even
more towards no.

Do we have (m)any compelling reasons to have this in 17.0 ?
