I see. But I have proposed an alternative solution, which is simpler and
completely contained in the build scripts, that is no code gets changed.
This may be a good alternative approach -- does glibc have to support
building using obsolete Linux headers? I don't think requiring recent
headers for building is unjustified, at least for a reasonable definition
of "recent" and 2.6.4 is over a year old, so it should fit. It's not
going to affect running the resulting library -- it will still work with
older versions of Linux.
