I added the patch via (http://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/, Bug ID is: #5555. I 
assigned that bug to you (hope you don't mind).

It modifies an internal, private structure (the krb5_gic_opt_private in 
krb5-1.6.1/src/include/k5-int.h) and adds two new calls to libkrb5 
(incl. header). So, I think it does not.

Hm, I've never seen personal copyright in MIT code, that is why I just 
used the "default" copyright header. If you do add personal copyright in 
an appropriate location, you can of course add my name there. If not, 
that's fine as well.
