We don't merge from master to the release branch, we merge in the
opposite direction.  See gitmerge.el.  So I think the dynamic modules
changes should be applied to emacs-25, and will then be merged to
master in due time.

in any case, once the release branch is cut, any bugfixes that fix
problems visible on emacs-25 should be applied there, not to master
(they will be later merged to master via gitmerge.el).  The master
branch should only get direct commits of fixes for bugs that don't
exist on the release branch.
