I would just note for context that it looks to me like less than the
normal set of patches, except that simply due to timing the CVE-2021-
20251 fixes landed after 4.17.0 not before.

The changes around the GET_ANC stuff, and so the selftest changes they
brought in as a depenency were not a regression or bug fix, just a
useful new feature that I had reason to want in upstream releases, but
are likewise not a sign of a branch 'not yet ready' either.

4.17 seems to be landing fairly well actually.
