To reproduce in single site:

  2. Enter a URL into the search input and click "Search Users".
  3. You'll see a fatal error:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_is_large_network() in wp-includes/user.php on line 477

23683.patch moves the function to ms-functions.php, which could also help in #22917.

23683.patch doesn't actually fix the error in single site. 23683.2.patch should do that.

Might be easier to read as:

elseif ( preg_match('|^https?://|', $search) && ! ( is_multisite() && wp_is_large_network( 'users' ) ) )

Let's be a bit more conservative for 3.5.2 and simply aim to avoid the fatal error: 23683.diff.

The problem with moving a function from one file to another is that if the update fails in some very unexpected and uncaught way, the function could suddenly exist twice, which will result in fatal errors. I'd rather try to just fix the fatal without possibly introducing others in a minor release. (Checksums would, of course, make this better.)
