I have not seen the actual changes of these upstream releases, so I
cannot comment on them.  Given we are in a freeze, I can only recommend
going with targeted fixes (which can include the "smime sha"-fix if that
makes sense).

That said, if the diff for 2.7.5..2.7.8 is short and reviewable, I can
be probably persuaded to consider it.

FYI: These fixes (regardless of which path we go with) should probably
be in unstable within week.  Preferably sooner.
