No, it has already been checked in.  So, it looks like his patch is
really all that is needed as long as the change in the algorithm is
valid (which I did not attempt to verify) -- i.e. protocol 27 is
already using a bug-fixed MD4 algorithm, and we should make it as
bug-free as possible before the next release.
