aActually i botched the description since they all come from upstream:
the patches with a subject line ending with 'CVE-2010-4251' are the same
one found in the CVE page (plus some syntax modification if needed)
while the 3 extraneous patches (3, 4 and 5) where picked by me, again
from upstream, and again modified to apply if needed.
Anyway, i'll regenerate the set: in absence of conflicts `cherry-pick
-x`, else "backported from".
