Are you talking about a patch file or a bug report? A patch is one or
more text files containing the before/after diff. It doesn't have any

Can you send me the patch file / bugzilla link? This makes it easier to
see if we are talking about the same thing.

If something was fixed in the master branch, the changes (commit) can be
cherry-picked to a release branch, like 4.4. This means that this update
is now part of the 4.4 code repository and the next time a 4.4 release
is created, it will be included.
