There was a discussion in the mailing list. Just after I pushed this
patch to master [0] setting it to 0.7.3 (because that was the version I
had back then), Dave Airlie mentioned that RHEL6 only ships mako 0.3.4
[1] and asked if we really need a later version or not. We did some
tests [2][3] and finally this patch [4] was pushed upstream.

I don't know if we need some feature from mako 0.8.0 to generate
isl_format_layout because this file was added later than my change,
probably Emil knows it.
