I'm running my stable/8 with Pedro's patches applied, including r251212,
no problems so far (although I don't have recent AMD CPUs to play with).

Understood.  My goal here is to try to keep stable/8 as alive as possible,
since I plan to keep using it beyond its official EOL.  Hence, when I see
fixes that potentially help ports to be buildable on it I'd usually ask if
they can be MFCed (when it's easy enough to do).
