No.  Please revert v1 and stick with the v2 patch.  The v1 patch is in
my opinion a rather ugly hack that addresses the symptom of the
problem and not the root cause.

It isn't your fault that both v1 and v2 were merged, but I'm asking
you to help cleanup the mess.  If you aren't able to do that please
let us know so that others can fix this properly.
