Yes, you can contribute the same code under LGPLv2.1+ to glibc and LGPLv3+
to GMP. The standard FSF assignment generally allows contributors to use
their own contributions under such terms as they see fit; it's adding and
relicensing code from other GNU projects, where you don't have relicensing
approval from all significant contributors, that needs FSF approval for
