My understanding was that these are solely about performance,
not correctness. That would make them weak candidates for
4.4.1 (under the slightly relaxed rules we put on x.y.1 releases),
but not any of the older trees. Do you have a different view?

No, these are correctness fixes.

The main thing (in this context) about 82713ec is reverting part of 4aab59a3 which broke migration on SVM (in principle I think you can take only the first hunk from it)

88e64cb fixes the fact that TSCs get unsynchronized after migration. And it needs some of the interfaces introduced in b95fd03 (which in itself is indeed mostly about performance)
