Question regarding patchwork patches

Dear Paul, Albert,

I would like to ask about the status of following patchwork patches:
[1/2] Y2038: make __mktime_internal compatible with __time64_t

[2/2] Fix time/mktime.c and time/gmtime.c for gnulib compatibility

The second one looks like changes necessary for gnulib to make it

However, both seems to be relevant for Y2038 support. If I may ask -
are there any issues with including those two patches into the glibc?

I've checked and those clearly apply on top of <glibc-2.29> tag.

A side question - commit messages above mention about: x86_64-linux-gnu
and i686-linux.gnu toolchains.

The "toolchain" note for 2.29:

* On most architectures, GCC 5 or later is required to build the GNU C
  Library.  (On powerpc64le, GCC 6.2 or later is still required, as

  Older GCC versions and non-GNU compilers are still supported when
  compiling programs that use the GNU C Library.

Could you share the version used for testing those patches (and if
possible the name/url)?

Thanks in advance for help.

Best regards,

Lukasz Majewski
