It might be worth noting that Peter imported the latest version of ICU
two days ago.

If you are willing to confirm the suspect, you can go to the source tree, run
    svn up -r36779
then rebuild everything and copy just the xetex binary into your TL
2015 tree, then try to remake the formats again.

It could also be that you would need to go as far back as r36558 if
the above won't help.

In any case I suspect that we'll need some help from XeTeX developers.

Karl, should we temporary disable Thai patterns, so that at least the
formats will build for users willing to test the rest of tlpretest?
