Isn't the right solution then to get your patch either upstream or into the Qt copy?

I'm not sure if putting v8 into gerrit helps much, because things like rebasing are
much harder with Gerrit. In a strange sense we want to make it difficult to modify
our fork of V8 :)

That said, does your employer allow you to contribute the patch upstream?
