With the model that the kernel has switched to, this would technically
still work. Of course by default, if we didn't pay attention, the next
time we do a build it would literally overwrite anything you changed.
This is pretty standard in this situation, yeah. Often the fix we're
putting in is literally a backport from upstream, so this isn't really
an issue, because the next time someone does a build from upstream
it'll likely be a new version that includes the change anyway.
Otherwise if it's something that feels like it'd be "fragile" I try to
send a PR or at least file an issue to get the change ported back
