Good question. I'd be interested to know the answer too.

Bottom line though, these changes are totally optional to backport as they
don't actually fix anything. The number of register bugs this might help me
with could probably be counted on one hand. So if it doesn't get backported,
no big deal. Just could mean a few fixes to hard-to-reproduce register
problems don't get done any time soon.
