Did you test to make sure you did not reintroduce CVE-2013-6466?  While your
patch is simple, the patch that fixed CVE-2013-6466 is not and touched a lot
of code.  It was not immediately obvious -- at least to me -- that
reenabling the compatibiliy code will still work well after the changes done
to fix CVE-2013-6466.
