Headline: branch is not ready for RC0 tagging today, we will be
reevaluating the situation again tomorrow morning Eastern TZ.

I will possibly wait till tomorrow 9:00 AM Eastern, and merge this, and
we may have to deal with bugs before release is done.

Further failure analysis is complete, and Amar has submitted additional
fixes, awaiting regressions (and then merge->backport->...) to be completed.
