Status update: I have a number of fixes and an implementation of
SA_SIGINFO which you can review here:

Patched Debian packages for glibc and hurd are available in my
repository above:

  # echo deb experimental/ >>/etc/apt/sources.list
  # apt-get install libc0.3=2.13-7~jk3 hurd=20110519-3~jk1+b1

Although weak _aliases_ seemed not to suffer from this problem, I have
abandonned the idea and instead use a temporary symbol version
(GLIBC_2.13_DEBIAN_7), which we can alias later to the official ones
when the code is included upstream.

Testers still have to be careful: before you upgrade your glibc package
to one without the required support, be sure to install a version of
Hurd which does not require it.

I will submit a revised series for review later this week, as well as
matching Debian patches. I expect only the last patch (implement global
dispositions) will change, and new ones will be added on top of it.
