I've been trying to backport that patch to curl 7.26.0 (used in Debian stable),
but I've noticed that the connection reuse has changed drastically since then,
and that patch doesn't seem to be enough to fix the issue (in fact, it actually
breaks the test suite, since test 519 freezes for some reason). I haven't even
tried to backport it to Debian oldstable (7.21.0).

Is there someone that successfully backported it to something pre-7.30.0, or
should I just give up?
