OK, I've done so already last night when I wrote my message but
haven't pushed the result out yet.

Note (primarily to other people) that the above exchange does not
mean "a fix to an old bug is automatically disqualified during the
rc freeze period".  If the fix is so focused and obvious that there
is no way the change inadvertently and negatively affects other code
and introduce a new bug, it is perfectly fine to apply the fix any
time.  I don't know git-p4 well enough to tell if this five patch
series was in that "obviously safe" category myself, so I asked Pete
to decide it for me.
