As our release is coming close, I could live with postphoning it to 4.7.6 (also as my time is still limited to add my fix on top).

Linus and I talked about this, long story short, he would rather not cherry-pick but merge to a specific commit in Jef's libdivecomputer (this way the git history stays sane). That means he is currently looking at the iostream code, which means he has a headache, is frustrated and may or may not get this done today, or this week, or ever.

It's frustrating that Jef went down that road even though we had pretty strong arguments why his design is not useful for the dive computers that we already support...
