Heh, I hadn't realized that wasn't handled by standard DSAs, sorry about
that. That these updates go through the same security-master doesn't
help making it obvious they are different.

Anyways, I'd rather not have more work to do, so if can send
announcements, that works for me. Or you can deal with the backport
from back to back.

Please note that the next ESR bump (52) will require GCC 4.8, which is
not in wheezy, so I won't be building ESR45 for wheezy past 45.8,
presumably some time in April next year.
