I'd personally prefer to build it in a job and publish it so that you
can see what's been done.  Feels like a similar situation to the RPMs
we build for openafs (see ~[1]).  If you put your patch somewhere, you
can use a file-matcher to just rebuild/upload when something changes.

I see the argument that one binary blob from upstream is about as
trustworthy as any other, though.
