Not so many of the AIX changes should have been after the branch, so
chances that it works are reasonable well.

I'm not aware of any. But keep in mind that the stable branches start
out as snapshots of current after some stabilisation phase. As Al will
announce the upcoming freeze for the next branch, it gives you a
starting point to check for regressions in what you are interested in.
The freeze exists to hunt down issue after all :)
