After further investigation, I understand the purpose of these patches
better, and I disagree with their inclusion. For one, it would block
releasing openssh 7.6_p1, as the patches have not been ported forward.
However, I question their inclusion at all - why are we pulling along a
huge patchset in a core (and security sensitive) package that upstream
has been refusing for years?
