As stated in Moritz's original message, the linux kernel git commit id
is e0bccd315.  Here is a link directly to a message with the patch:

Infoleaks certainly do get an id as they are considered an exposure
(i.e. they make an exploiters job easier); as in Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE):
