Given that this is a user visible change could you please file
a glibc bugzilla bug in sourceware[1] so we can track the commit and so
that future users can reopen the bug to discuss any defects?

Then you need to add the BZ# to the ChangeLog, and whomever
commits this for you will mark it fixed in the NEWS. We should
also write up a NEWS blurb for this since it's the first explicit
header coordination of it's kind and we should highlight that
so developers take note and help us coordinate more headers.
