Just land the patch and rebaseline the tests. Please also coordinate with
Chromium port's WebKit gardener when landing this patch.

Also, does this patch only affect Chromium Windows and Linux, and not GTK,
Qt, Windows, etc...? If the answer is no, and will affect other
non-Chromium ports, then you're also responsible for rebaselining or
coordinating with other ports to make sure you don't break tests on their
ports as well.
