I'm not seeing that exact patch in my upstream kernels. That
being said, I could be missing a variant or different implementation
that is doing the same thing.

I just compared the linux-yocto patched function to a 5.0-rc1 tree
and I still don't see the exact change in the do_translation_fault()

What oe/yocto branch were you using ? It more sounds like the lab
is out of date and has triggered a re-patching the tree, and hence
the patch won't apply, since it is already on the branch.
