Did you also update the meta and machine branch SRCREVs ?
No, I didn't.

I've just done this now. It's only after you mentioned it

While obvious, once stated, it's better to explicitly document
this step in the kernel development guide, so that people remember to
do it:

If you have a moment, drop a quick bugzilla and we can make sure
that happens.
