There are legal reasons that Fedora has not distributed those patches

Those patches do not contain any subpixel antialiasing code, they just call
the freetype LCD filter when it's available. There is no actual subpixel
antialiasing being done if it's disabled in freetype. In fact, those
patches even REMOVE hardcoded subpixel filters, in favor of using the
freetype ones.

In that case, as someone said in the bug, they should probably just go
directly upstream. It does seem like a sensible way to do things,
though.
omg could it actually be :-O something from ubuntu actually going upstream!

i never thought i'd see the day lol
