Is that part of the patches (related to GC_RETURN_ADDR_PARENT and
GC_ADD_CALLER) something you're willing to merge into master? I actually
proposed to drop them from the ports tree to reduce divergence from the
upstream (also because I don't actually understand the need for them),
but if you're willing to merge them, that would be great as well.

That is appreciated, thanks.

Right, looks good.
