Actually, there is a reason NOT to apply the patch in general on all
platforms; it introduces logic (an if {} else {} statement) in a place
where there wasn't previously one, which *presumably* slows things
down somewhat.  I don't know if the memcpy() calls are invoked so
often as to make this material; it's hard to tell.
