    If I remember correctly this particular patch is fairly straightforward.
    If you put together a patch set for the release branch I do have two
    test machines running the release to make sure it doesn't blow anything
    up.  I wouldn't know how to test for the specific security hole but I
    don't expect that it would operate any differently from HEAD.
