FWIW we tested this with Yocto Project and everything appears to work
fine with our core builds and there weren't any unexpected changes. We
were using 2.72c (we wanted to ensure it was tested and be ready for
the final release) and had a lot of backported patches which we could
drop. As such we've switched to the 2.72d version.
