Good catch and thanks for the pointers! Do you have any interest in
backporting these two patches or should I put them on my TODO list?

Unrelated to who does the job, we should discuss if it makes sense to
try to fix the bug for 4.15. The patches don't seem trivial so I am
tempted to say that it might be best to leave the bug unfixed for 4.15
and fix it later.
