I think this bug is end-user-visible because it is due to an incorrect
implementation of the original ABI.  Can you file a bug to track this
and add the number to the ChangeLog retroactively?

(The other patch, “Extend structs La_s390_regs / La_s390_retval” seems
different in this regard; I believe applications would have to check
that glibc supports the new ABI before they use the new features.)
