Looks good to me.  We'll also need some sort of README with instructions 
on how to apply the hotfix, but you've probably thought of that.  I can 
do the signing etc. if you like.

Testing should be done the same way users will use the hotfix: install 
the binary 2.1.0 distribution, verify that the error occurs.  Install 
the hotfix and verify that it fixes the issue ;-).  It would be good if 
we could all do that before we vote, so we test various configurations.
