Yes. But instead of just bumping the version, I took the liberty of 
adding newer versions of the files it installs from upstream (I do that 
from time to time, last time it was in August I believe).

It means that I fetched latest version of *.c and *.h files that the 
patch adds from their git repository and added them. The patch was 
simply too big to appear on the mailing list (over 100 KB, mailman 
allows 100 KB). You can use diff against the newer patch and a 10.3.5 
one to see what got changed.

The kinds of situations where commit message doesn't appear on mailing 
list. That way, you can see who added it and when (more or less).

Just clone the repository and copy the latest version of the files we 
ship as a patch into the mesasrc/xdemos and create a new patch.
