With the commit reverted,
% print -P %F{10}hello|cat -v

With the commit applied,
% print -P %F{10}hello|cat -v

I don't know what the purpose of the commit is, the message is very
unclear, it also doesn't appear to modify any documentation. I have
fg_start_code defined in zle_highlight and it worked up to that
commit. Blindly appending 8;5; to my custom start code seems extremely
broken and I have no idea under what circumstances it would ever be
correct to do so. In fact it directly contradicts the documentation:

fg_start_code (\e[3)
   The  start  of the escape sequence for the foreground colour.  This
is followed by an ASCII digit representing the colour.

8;5; is clearly not an ASCII digit.
