The libc.threads_minus_1 lock skipping bug is the first thing to come up that's really big enough to motivate actually doing such a branch. In practice fairly little is likely to hit it in practice, but it's enough of an unknown and potential blow-up that we need to advise patching or upgrade. Aside from that, there were possibly arch-specific regressions in 1.1.24 on mips, and a few other arch-specific bugs that had been around for a few release cycles. These would make sense to fix in a 1.1.25, if we do it.
