Thanks. I've made an upload to Debian Experimental last night with a
bunch of cherry-picked post-5.0.7 patches plus this one.

One build failure so far (four slower/busier architectures still
outstanding), but it happened on the architecture where it happened
the most often so far (kfreebsd-amd64). It was inside A05, but not at
the above location but at the test starting at line 179 (or not
properly synced output):
