Great, thanks!

I hope that it will take only a few days, or perhaps a week, to verify
and finalize the new bootstrap binaries.  In the meantime, I suggest
that you continue your work on core-updates with no regard to this
issue, and continuing to build it out on Berlin.

The good news is that the only cost should be the time it takes for
Berlin to rebuild 'core-updates'.  It should not affect anything else
beyond the early bootstrap, except of course for different hashes
