Ok, done. unstable has +b3 at the moment, I've scheduled +b5 to leave
+b4 free for use in testing, should we need it.

So, these fixes come from upstream's svn, to be included in the next
2.2.x point release? If that's the case, you may upload to t-p-u, and
I'll migrate it to testing after apache2 has aged in unstable a bit
without problems.

(Also, FYI, there will be a bit period of time where apache2-mpm-itk
will be uninstallable in testing, the time between apache2 entering
testing and the buildds binNMUing it against testing.)
