See my comments below.

Kathy and I agree this one should be "no uplift."

Agreed on "no uplift" but note that in 1105689 Mozilla went with SHA384
instead of SHA512 (it seems there are security reasons for that choice).
We could switch to SHA384 but we will need to think through the
migration issues.

Kathy and I agree this should be uplifted but the patch may need some
work (I think what we did regresses 1159090).

Agreed — no uplift.
