You may want to contact the guys that package your custom distro.
Since some of those patches are marked for stable they would be
automatically backported but I don't know who provides your custom
kernel. AFAIK these are likely to be backported already by Redhat so
if you are using CentOS 8.2 or RHEL8.2 there is a good chance that
these are already in.
