These two commits are not on the emacs-25 branch.

This is not the emacs-25 branch, this is master.  Could you please
clarify this confusion?

The keyboard handling on Windows was changed on master in February, so
I don't see how some change in the beginning of June could have done
anything about that.  I'm probably missing something.
