numeric.c has changed since perl-5.28.0, so your patch did not apply cleanly.  There were 3 hunks rejected, preventing me from creating a smoke-me branch for testing.

Would it be possible to re-draw this patch against perl 5 blead, preferably creating the patch with 'git format-patch'?

Thank you very much.
