Sure, if we can push fixes upstream that would be great.
However, we shouldn't let that block us from comitting fixes to FreeBSD.
The advantage of having code in the FreeBSD repo is that we can
change it if we need to, even if the fix isn't yet in the upstream sources.
Contrib code is not made out of stone that can't be modified!
