Don't particularly want the git history churn, if we expect that the
patch will ship as-committed in 9.6.  If it becomes clear that the
performance fix is unlikely to happen, we can revert then.

If the performance change were an issue for a lot of testing, I'd agree
with a temporary revert, but I concur with Andres that it's not blocking
much.  Anybody who does have an issue there can revert locally, no?
