i've moved the Gentoo patches starting with 2.18 to the glibc git tree.  i 
don't think i'll bother publishing the older ones since there's not a whole 
lot to be gained there.

moving forward, i plan on cutting Gentoo patchsets straight from the glibc git 
tree so there's nothing to sync up.

documentation for each patch should be in the commit message.  i'll try to add 
more as i go along (like explicit reasons as to what is holding the patch back 
from being merged).

i've been linking the Gentoo bugzilla with the one as i go
