But for 7.8.6...8.0.0 will not filter out the backported commits, no?

Here is an idea, we stop backporting and then the simple queries will start
working or, a more conservative suggestion, we consider the bugs fixed in
8.0 and 7.8 worth reporting for both. It is fixed for 8.0, so it should be
reported there. It also happens to be backported to the 7.8 branch, but
that does not change anything about a need to report it for 8.0 since
that's really the main focus after the 7.8.0 release. I'm just not sure how
this should work in the state when we branch out for release, but there is
no release yet (the current 8.0 vs 8.2 state).
