I agree it should be all or nothing. And I may have been slightly
confused.

Anyway: 5b06bbcfc2c6 is fix for ca37e57bbe0cf, and that one is for
"mostly harmless warning" (quoting changelog). ca37e57bbe0cf is not
present in 4.4.178, I believe best solution is not to add that one in
the first place, so we don't have to fix it up.
