I disagree. Those patches are almost trivial and the non-trivial ones
(9daf01ef2eb9 for example) were not backported. So I don't see the fuss here.
However, those backports are helping to backport fixes for the actual issues,
like the timetooltips ones, instead of having to fight to find the
actual chains of dependencies.

Qt5 works quite fine above vlc.git with a set of 2 patches, and we've
spend quite some time testing it, and there are no obvious regressions.

This is another issue than Qt5. I was asked 3 times on IRC to bp them, so I
did. And the one that is actually broken was removed.

However, I find the last remark quite weird seeing the last fix I had to
push to fix the build...
