To be clear, it is a bug in the original commit. Mikey and I pair programmed
that code, and he was *definitely* typing at that point ;)

Can you please include in the changelog what the symptom of the bug is, and
have you seen it in practice?

The bad commit went into 3.16-rc1, so we don't need to backport this to any
stable release.

cheers
