Comment (by nacin):

 In the case of the wp-admin/edit-comments.php diff, the </div> is for
 div#wrap and needs to be moved outside of the form, rather than the form
 moved inside the div.

 In the case of the wp-admin/upload.php diff, the </div> should be removed;
 it is the same issue -- closing div#wrap too early, which is closed later
 again. If I had to guess, the floating clear is necessary inside the
 </form>, but the one outside can be removed.

 The wp-admin/edit-tags.php diff can be ignored. I can't find $location
 used for anything beyond redirects, which should not have amp encoding.
 (As it's a global, some other function might be pulling it in. Leaving it

 In the case of the wp-admin/includes/template.php diff, the ID addmetasub
 is used only for styling. The addmeta name is, importantly, used in the
 post handler. This change would break the form. I do not know what this is
 trying to fix.
