Sorry, I totally missed that you had completed/proposed the backport
of the showstopper to 2.2.x. I should have reviewed it earlier but I
will work on it Tuesday.

My preference would be to proceed with the release once the current
showstopper is in, and not to wait for further mitigations or patches.
   I don't think undisclosed vulnerability fixes are imminent and we
have an important, disclosed CVE to ship.
