I submitted it and it got accepted into the sound tree.
It is not yet in the Linus tree.
It has been slightly modified.
Here is the commit from the sound tree (attached)
Do we have to wait until Linus Torvalds merges it?

Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: usb-audio: define another USB ID for a buggy USB MIDI cable
There are many USB MIDI cables out there that have buggy
firmware that reports it can do more than 4 bytes in a
packet when they can only properly handle 4
This patch adds the ID of yet another one of those cables
