Thanks Ihar. I applied this patch to master.  I also applied this patch to
the branch-20.09 since you requested this
feature to be considered and I found  the patch to be low risk.

I think with this patch, we can close the branch-20.09 for any new features
and prepare for the release.

Thanks
Numan
