OK. Proposed backports here:

I didn't include
d/p/gcredentialsprivate-Document-the-various-private-macros.patch in this
version, but I did include a backport of the unit test from upstream
git master, together with some subsequent fixes to give it better coverage
and portability.

I'm smoke-testing a similar backport for stretch, which I'll push when
it passes the build/autopkgtest/piuparts pipeline.

I'll propose these versions to the release team as-is, but I'll also point
out that the test-related patches can be dropped if they prefer. (Including
the test gives me better confidence that everything is working, though!)
