OK, I uploaded a new patchset for our 1.8.0 branches:

Changes against previous patches are:

1. drops the patch for 199088 as mozilla doesn't even announce it as a
security issue.
2. updates patch bz358594.patch to build cleanly even with old gcc
3. adds use-old-upstreamversion.patch to series file which ensures old
versionstrings aka version.txt and milestone.txt to be and

Eventually upstream landed 387403.tbird.patch as of yesterday
... so if you start with a fresh MOZILLA_1_8_0_BRANCH checkout now,
you might want to remove that patch from series file before you quilt
push -a.

I will upload a new orig.tar.gz which we can use to build iceweasel
to the version
will be firefox-

If you want me to do the iceweasel upload let me know. I can do that
tomorrow then.
