Fair enough. Then how should I correctly proceed to submit this patch  
which fixes a bug in the 3.15 branch (only)? In 3.15.x filter codes  
_are_ replaced (I just checked the code in 3.15.5). And I originally  
based my analysis on 3.15.1. Your statement makes the patch an  
optional improvement for 3.16.x, but it's a necessary fix for 3.15.x.  
Do I need to submit this patch two times with different commit logs?

Thank you in advance,

Christoph Schulz
