Unless it is a security hole being fixed you won't be able to apply
the fix to 4.9.  If the person who filed the PR absolutely needs the
fix in 4.9 it would be up to them to retro-fit the patch to 4.9
themselves (if they didn't provide the patch to begin with...).

With 4.10 being called an Errata Branch we could process this as an
Errata item for 4.10 if you feel strongly that this is a bug a lot of
people are being bitten by and there are no workarounds for it.  If
that is the case after this has been MFC-ed and in RELENG_4 for
around two weeks you can send mail to re@ to request it be handled
as an Errata item.  Please note the "lots of people" and "no workaround"
stuff - once the release is done the bar is fairly high on what we'll
consider for Errata.
