 That's API compatible.

 Would the new release have only added API, you would have had to bump
 shlibs; if the above are the only changes, you don't need to do

 We would have to bump SONAME if you remove this patch; you can skip
 changing package name / SONAME if you can prove that no package in the
 archive uses this function.

 I documented how I did it; I prefer manual commands rather than
 autoreconf as this tends to use newer autotools when available while I
 prefer keeping the diff small by using the same versions as upstreams.
 Also, autoreconf might fail in some cases and runs too many commands.
