Okay, I cherry-picked all of the relevant patches without any conflict. See: bug_28104 ( for the result. We might be able to omit #1443145 if we want, as I think we are not using any safebrowsing feature. I'd be fine with that. But the overhead of fixing that bug while we are fixing the other ones is not that high.

I looked the patches and tested the branch on Android 6, 7 and 8. Everything is looking good and working fine.
