Is there a bug# you want associated with these patches? If not, we'll
probably need one opened as these changes will get scrutinized by the
release team when I try to upload.
A quick test build on amd64/i386 looks fine. I assume you've received
positive test confirmation on these as well?
Pending the above responses:
