It's been more than half a year since I've been doing these patches,
but as far as I remember, -- yes, some would be needed for 5.8.0 as

Our Perl package in Openwall GNU/*/Linux is still based around 5.6.0
with these and other patches.  We will be updating it to 5.8.0+ (or
whatever will be the latest stable version of Perl) in a few months,
at which point I will likely get back to you with the new set of
patches.  Unfortunately, we don't have sufficient development
resources to concentrate on this update right now, -- other things are
more urgent for our project.

Obviously, it would help if you happen to have more time for working
on this and would review our 5.6.0 patches for applicability to 5.8.0
and newer.
