I don't think we should wait on p4 or try and push any new changes into
it. It would mean that proper analysis and testing would be too rushed
to be sure that the fixes were correct and address the problems.

I haven't seen what was sent so I don't know what's in the batch but
it's better to do a p5 if necessary.
