I'm definitive about the first one, and am even intending to put its
backports on the stable branches later today (as the whole batch
already passed the push gate). You may have noticed that I
committed them already (you should have raised your concern
regarding committing them at this stage when these were discussed
on security@), so if you're unhappy with the second one to be
there we ought to revert it.
