Got feedback from the security team - seems that there are no concerns about this patch/PR from a security point of view.

However, a question was raised about the ongoing maintenance, since this patch is not yet upstream accepted in zlib (just in zlib-ng).
Is IBM still working with upstream to get this patch accepted in zlib?
It needs to be made sure that such non-upstream_accepted patches do not need to be (side-)maintained for ever (if at all) - especially in a case like this where common code is touched.

The final decision whether this can be picked-up and integrated is at the Foundations team.
