.. so I ended up waiting for that fixed version due to this email, but
it never came. Should I just apply the original and re-fix it myself?
Or is this queued up for 3.12 as being "not likely to actually
matter", which is quite possibly true (since we compile with
"-fno-strict-overflow", and thus gcc should hopefully not ever do any
transformations that depend on signed integer overflows being
undefined)
