FYI, this would have also been a good point at which you could have
merged the commit used for coreutils into the gnulib master branch.
Even a fake merge 'git merge -s ours coreutils-8.9' would be
appropriate, if the end result is semantically that the effects of your
patch are incorporated in the tree.

You could still do this.

That way, the next update of gnulib as coreutils submodule could still
be a fast-forward.
