I don't understand even the motivation for Mathias' question.

It seems to be a restatement of what I wrote in the commit message of
the commit I posted, with an added 'basically', and a mistake (5.3
instead of 5.4, which is what I wrote in my commit message).

I don't know if he simply did not read my commit message at all. If he
did, he also missed this:

Even if Mathias did get the version number correct, his 'question'
wouldn't add anything, because all of the information he seems to be
looking for is in the commit message.

I don't understand his motivation for the 'question'. It is pre-answered
by the commit message.

I guess he just didn't read it and decided to reply anyway. Mathias, can
you confirm?

The patch bumps the SunPro requirement to 5.4, as I wrote in the commit
message, and as a reading of the code shows:

-#if __SUNPRO_CC < 0x400
+#if __SUNPRO_CC < 0x540
 #error "Compiler not supported or configured - please reconfigure"

I did typo in the comment just above that. Fixed in the newly attached
