Hi everyone,

The patch did land yesterday but I reverted it due to one hidden bug.
This may confuse certain tools (I had an issue with garden-o-matic
picking up the TEXT failures due to the patch one day after) so beware
if you intent to rebaseline.

An updated patch was just attached on the bug and will be landed upon
review (hopefully next week). To avoid spamming webkit-dev further, I
will post the updates on the bug.
