I'm sorry I did not see this before, since I had packages ready for
Wheezy, Jessie and Stretch already. I contacted securit@d.o yesterday
but their reply arrived late at night (instructing me to contact LTS
about the Wheezy package).

>From a quick review, the patches you applied are basically the ones in my
package, so I guess they must be OK. I only have one OpenVPN server
running Wheezy these days but I cannot test this until tomorrow (under
heavy use right now). If that's fine with you I'll come back with news.
