INLINE_SYSCALL fails on x86_64


 Ever since the upgrade to gblic 2.15 I've been having a weird problem
reported by KDE, it's crash that I've been able to trace back to poll.c ,
line 87 (/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux).
 I'm running Linux, kernel 3.3 , 64 bit, it's a less know distribution,
Frugalware, for which I'm also a maintainer. Other people using 2.15 have
reported this and it disappears when going back to 2.14. Also on i686
everything runs just fine.
 You can see the patches we apply here:;a=tree;f=source/base/glibc
 but there aren't many.
 Also I can't think of any special build flags being used.
 Stack trace is here:

 I've been able to find some differences in sysdep.h (
sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/x86_64/sysdep.h ) in the ASM code. Is this code
used ? Could it have caused the problem.
