I think most people are doing what I was doing: looking at the values in
the logs, and writing math appropriately.  Most of the other log output
isn't documented well, and the output values are obviously bytes, so
frankly it never occurred to me to check the docs.

Agreed that backporting the fix to 8.3 and 8.4 is infeasible.
