Subject: 1.1.x branch possibility

When releasing 1.2.0, I left open the possibility of further releases
in a 1.1.x branch. 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.
