I think that's a good plan. While eCryptfs has been fairly stable for
quite some time, it is starved for maintenance attention these days as
you've noticed with this thread. :/

Thanks for bringing up this bug. I'll include you on any followup
patches to fix the 88ae4ab9802e change so that you'll be aware of any
additional local patches that you'll need to carry.
