Actually, you seem to have added an odd subset of the people involved.

For example, Ingo - who actually committed that patch - wasn't on the cc.

I do think we need to simply revert that patch. It's very simple: it
has been reported to lead to actual problems for people, and we don't
fix one problem and then say "well, it fixed something else" when
something breaks.

When something breaks, we either unbreak it, or we revert the change
that caused the breakage.

It's really that simple. That's what "no regressions" means. We don't
accept changes that cause regressions. This one did.
