719f2c934030f74ce0a4892233f494f168852698 was an 18.0 specific patch. I
Cc'd 18.0 in the commit message:

Cc: "18.0" <mesa-stable at lists.freedesktop.org>

And, I used:

git format-patch --subject-prefix=PATCH\ 18.0

You might also add "Fixes" to the commit message if applicable, even
though in this case it wouldn't be used to trigger cherry-picking to
the stable branch.
