There are:
Re: [patch 1/2] auto-load safe-path: Permit shell wildcards
[patch 2/2] [mingw+non-GNU?] gnulib fnmatch for libiberty/ FNM_FILE_NAME bugs

[patch 1/2] works perfectly fine on GNU/Linux without [patch 2/2].
[patch 2/2] has no effect anywhere without [patch 1/2].

But the new functionality of [patch 1/2] behaves incorrectly on non-GNU/Linux
systems without [patch 2/2].

TBH I do not think auto-load safe-path functionality is of much concern on
non-GNU/Linux systems at all but to keep all correct...

Also before checking-in [patch 2/2] I am going to update gnulib files as
[obv] to separate gnulib update vs. gnulib addition of fnmatch-gnu module.
I could add fnmatch-gnu from a several months old gnulib snapshot but that
sems incorrect to me.  gnulib update also seems safe enough to me (WDYT?).
