Update golang b/c there have been significant performance improvements that are desired for openshift.  

Actual results:
$go version
go version go1.4.2 linux/amd64

Expected results:

The testcase at http://play.golang.org/p/zpXKadV5mo is what we're hoping to pick up a fix for

So it is issue tracked by BZ1290472 (If I didn't overlooked anything, it is same reproducer). Could you please confirm that for a clarity and a record?

Just elaborate bit on BZ#1290472 assuming confirmation. It is separate issue tracked by the up mentioned BZ with no direct relation(aside it affects all currently released golang versions) to golang version/rebase(it will be/is "fixed" by upstream in upcoming upstream 1.6 release, and it has been fixed in Fedora see BZ1290543).
Comment 7 Timothy St. Clair 2016-01-06 11:43:32 EST
Primary driver on our end are the performance changes, and upstream k8s support.  gc-performance has substantially been improved.
Comment 8 Yaakov Selkowitz 2016-01-06 12:46:56 EST
Rebasing to 1.5 would also allow enablement on aarch64.
Comment 13 Timothy St. Clair 2016-01-13 21:45:29 EST
Make that golang 1.5.3 - recently release CVE as of today.
