Sir, RHEL6 is not prehistoric ... and this is failing on my server too.
I'm not sure when "is_passing" was added, but it was later than 5.10.1.

Will check and apply.

The point of running ancient versions in the buildfarm is so that we
don't move the goalposts on software compatibility without knowing it.
When we come across a good reason to desupport an old Perl or Tcl or
whatever version, we'll do it; but having to add another ten lines or
so of code doesn't seem like a good reason.
