Sorry about missing you on Cc. If anyone else is looking for the
patch, it's archived at

The idea of patch 1 was only to address the build regression on
x86, so I was hoping that part would be uncontroversial. I split
out patch 2/2 since that is intended to actually change the behavior,
hopefully for the better.

I introduced a new regression on riscv that Conor Dooley found, and
that should already be fixed now. It looks like we may need a similar
change on s390

but I haven't tested that, and I'll wait for your reply then.
