That is indeed good news.

Now, this is only a workaround. As seen in the RH bugzilla, the patch
is in the z-series kernel and the target is set to "7.3". That will be
CentOS 7 (1605) [or later]. At any rate it's several months from now.
If we are able to identify the patch, it will be possible to include
it in the centosplus kernel.
