Till now I didn't see a strong reason why backporting might be
needed (or even just wanted). If you think there is one,
arranging for backport material to come first would of course
be nice. And indeed, the #define-s you mention are meant to be
there just to limit the churn of this immediate patch; I'd be
happy to see them go away in another patch immediately after.
