Hi Kris,

The icedtea-web port maintainer replied to me again with this:

Never mind.  The patch only appeared in master and it wasn't merged
back to 7u branch. :-(

So I guess that hasn't really changed much as we still have to wait
for the openjdk7 PBI to attempt its rebuild and then see if
icedtea-web works or not. I just thought that I would let you know
about the icedtea-web port maintainer's second reply.
