Sorry to hear that.

Unfortunately, it's more complicated than that; Scott said in an
off-list mail that due to some weird gcc inlining, shibboleth-sp2 would
need to be rebuilt as well.

I can handle the uploads but considering the magnitude of the changes,
I'd prefer it if one of your comaintainers could handle the update or
even wait for you to get better. If you insist, though, say so and I'll
NMU in coordination with the security and release teams.
