Sadly, no.  The Emacs-25 pretest is at a very late stage (John Wiegley,
the maintainer is hoping to release in July, I think), and only fixes
for particularly nasty/urgent/high impact bugs are being accepted now.
In all honesty, this isn't such a bug - people have been living with it
for a very long time (over 10 years, possibly 20), and it doesn't impede
the use of CC Mode all that much, annoying though it is.  I know that
John would reject my request if I asked to merge it into the emacs-25
branch.

So, sorry about that too.  What I suggest you do is to keep the patch
(even though it doesn't apply cleanly), and when you upgrade to Emacs 25
in the (northern hemisphere) summer, apply the patch and rebuild.  At
least that way your own copy will run with the bug fixed.
