I don't post any patches that are not regression tested.
In fact the patch was needed to run proper regression tests with
profiling on because it was a bootstrap fix.
I had interpreted your earlier comments as approval, and imho
the patch is obvious anyways.
Also I would like to point out that such a long turn around time for
bootstrap fixes (and only out of secondary considerations which had
nothing to do with the actual bootstrap problem) is extremely disruptive for
anyone who actually relies on working bootstraps.
If there's no intention to keep --enable-werror working for all build
options the default should probably change to --disable-werror.
