 Looks good. The `needs_revision` is mainly for the following nits:

 s/clang 0.3.8/clang 3.8.0/

 https://github.com/golang/go/issues/9206#issuecomment-310476743 is used
 for both path
 and timestamp issue. It seems for the latter we want a different URL?

 One thing I was wondering is whether it would be more beneficial to split
 up the big webrtc patch into
 smaller ones. It might make it easier to follow the upstreaming efforts
 that way giving a clear impression on how many patches still need to get
 upstreamed and making patches easier to write once one or another of those
 patches is not needed anymore. I don't feel strongly about that, though.
 If you want to leave that as-is, fine with me.

 I have trouble to understand why `faketime` is needed now when building
 `go` given that we use `go` built without it for `obfs4proxy` and `meek`
 without any issues. "including those that arise here while compiling the
 Go runtime itself" should hold for the latter PTs as well, yet we don't
 need `faketime` in those cases. What is different between the `snowflake-
 client` and, say, the `obfs4proxy` case so that we need `faketime` for
 building `go` itself now? Are the problematic .o files plainly missing in
 `obfs4proxy`'s and `meek`s case? Or...
