You are right. I at first believed the bug report I mentioned along with
the change description would suffice (since mentioning
non-webkit-bugzilla trackers is fairly common, and the trace is pretty
straightforward), but I believe for this change a webkit bug with a bit
more information on the problem we're addressing is in order indeed!

I have opened https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41710 and will add
that as reference to the ChangeLog.
