I've reviewed this. The patch is old enough to be rejected by patch
command, but I manged to apply it by hand.
It compiles clean. Added tests pass.
I created fibonacci function similar to recursion_test in the patch
and confirmed the recursion raises error on 9.0 but not on 9.1.
Doc is not with the patch since this change is to remove unnecessary
optimization internally.
