First uses of the PHP 5.4 security backports

I recently checked the Debian PHP 5.4 changelog and found out this message (5.4.45-0+deb7u3 and 5.4.45-0+deb7u4):

* most patches taken from https://github.com/kaplanlior/php-src
Thanks a lot to Lior Kaplan for providing them.

I was very pleased to see my work being used, and I hope this would save other time while providing PHP long term support.

Also, while others do similar work (e.g. Remi from RedHat), it seems I’m the only when that make this over GIT and with full references (e.g. commit info, CVE info and bug number).

Comments and suggestions are always welcome… either mail or even better – a pull request.
