Yes, this test requires D6761 (or your proposed patch) or else signals will never propagate as expected. When reviewing/testing a patch from a series, it is necessary to consider the series as a whole and not just individual patches. If you test only the last patch in the series, there should be no expectation that the patch will function as intended since you are skipping all the dependent patches.
