Re: [PATCH v2 0/10] Tilera (and Linux asm-generic) support for glibc

elf.h always remains unified.  If your constants and names are standardized
to the extent that binutils trunk is using them, then we will harmonize.

Having ways for architecture-specific bits to come from sysdeps directories
is the right solution for cases like these.  We can work out the details
just on libc-ports instead of this unreasonbly long CC list.  When I'm
happy with the cleanliness of the solutions, I will put the necessary parts
into the main tree.

That's all still libc-ports territory.
