I'm not blaming anybody -- either bugmasters or Daniel (who fixed the
bug -- he almost certainly came across the bug independently and fixed
it without reference to Bugzilla).  Since we don't have a policy that
changes are only made against Bugzilla entries it would be foolish to
imply fault here.  In fact, if there is any blame, it probably falls on
me as the principal maintainer of the ARM back-end: I should have
remembered that there was a PR on this and asked Daniel to
cross-reference it.
