  Yeah, it's not. So far it was in my for_next_testing and for_testing
branches. Once the branch (for_testing) passes some compile tests (done)
and runtime tests with xfstests I will update for_next branch to include
the patch as well. Because merge window is far, I don't hurry with that
very much. But if it causes problems for you I can run the tests and update
for_next tonight or tomorrow.
