Yes, this is changing API so the target was 19.08. However, first patch 
is a fix and can be applied to 19.05 as well. The API documentation 
stated that the function was not thread safe, but the code itself was 
thread safe (it wasn't because it was buggy, but the intention of being 
thread safe was there), so this could be considered fixing docs to match 
the intended behavior of the code.
