Sigh, that's quite some churn still - unless these bugs were introduced in
the v3.11 merge window (i.e. are genuine _regressions_), shouldn't such
invasive fixes really go into v3.12 instead?

I see that some of the fixes here fix issues that your earlier post-rc1
rounds of non-regression fixes introduced to begin with. That's really not
a good pattern either IMO.
