I searched for the undefined symbols and provided them 
with the same logic than the functions that need them.
(But this is of course not an explanation for this

do not put words in my mouth.

I claimed that the patch fixes ticket #2253 (an important 
regression) and this is what my tests showed, I did not 
try to proof formally.
