Ok, great.

I expect the patch count to be zero for most future releases because
there are probably no users apart from Eckelmann. On the other hand if
we still need a patch it would continue to be good to have the exposure
in next.

So I'd say, if it reduces your burden feel free to drop it and if there
is something relevant later, it seems to be easy enough to readd it
