Uh, I don't see why having CC mode in Emacs would make this easier:
the whole point of the uninstalled fixes is that they are fixes to a
comparatively _stable_ version fit for release with Emacs 22.  The
HEAD of CC mode is _much_ less suited to be released with Emacs 22 if
I have understood things correctly.
