No, it's against somewhere in 1.5/1.6. I wouldn't bother trying to go
through manually and fixing rejects.

Well, if the change to vol-salvage.c fixes the salvager... that was the
only issue you had, wasn't it? There are other potential issues, but I
thought the other stuff was fixed in the 1.4-versions of the patches in
the ticket you referenced.

There are some other changes in the pipeline related to this, but if you
can create, access, and move around large-id volumes, you shouldn't need
the other stuff.
