It's not about being eager to start, downstream builds are diverging
since we don't have a source code to base 9.0.1 builds on. Given that
this code is security related, it means that many downstream
distributions that didn't have access to the errata drop can't
release, it's a serious issue[1].

We should at least have an ad interim 9u to call home.


[1] To mitigate the security impact for downstream you could at least
have a source drop that matches the binary release, I didn't see
anything like that though.
