gnome-shell on wayland completely ignores org.gnome.desktop.interface/text-scaling-factor setting. on X, UI and fonts are scaled correctly according to setting value.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 0.8
X session: gnome-shell scales to 0.8
wayland session: only "normal" windows are scaled, gnome-shell ignores setting.

This has been fixed upstream (https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-shell/commit/?h=gnome-3-18&id=2f82f783f233187ce1792f9a0c2ef69020ebd03e).

Is there any chance that a patch is included in fedora or will the next stable version (3.18.2?) be included when released?

The latter.

I obtain a very similar effect on fedora 24 alpha (Gnome 3.20). When I log into a session after a fresh boot, if I hover the mouse over the top bar or other sections of gnome-shell it becomes half its size.
Still in fedora 24 alpha, after a fresh install the interface and the dpi looked all messed up and I had a message related to a crash of gsettings. Apparently the latest updates fixed the crash, but I still have the small mouse issue described on Wayland.
How can I help?

I also have Intel HD graphics on Haswell architecture, Surface Pro 3.

This has been fixed upstream and a release containing the fix is already available in fedora 23.
