I upgraded a system from 2.2.5 and lots of binaries broke amoung them
tar, devfsd and ls
strace, bash and lots of other tools were ok.
All binaries were build with glibc-2.2.5
When I straced tar and ls I saw the segfault occurring after the first two
invocation. Running tar with 2.2.5 shows that there are 4 calls to
rt_sigaction in sequence. So I guess there is some API breakage.
