I believe, if you have a fix, displaying it here would allow the release
management team to evaluate the impact of applying it at such a late stage.

Also, if you have a non-intrusive hotfix (like, some particular b2 options
to make it build), this might be a viable solution for 1.54 as well. I
think, the configuration conflict can be worked around if you specify some
of the conflicting properties manually. This may well be the reason why
this hasn't come up in test results.
