Now, I'll not comment on all of this, but I still have a few comments:
a) you still did not come up with a use case or a sample for the need of
this patch.
b) all your patches actually broke the build as they copied way too
much, for instance the samples and test-suit dir should only be copied
if they are not excluded during the build.
c) I just applied a patch which should do what you want to do without
breaking the build.
d) I guess that there will be more maintenance releases of 2.1.x - so
2.1.11 won't be the last.
e) The timing for applying this patch and the way it was done was
not...well...optimal.
f) I'll now continue with preparing the release.

Thanks
Carsten
