Except for licenses and for gnulib's avoidance of TABs in some places, 
changes to shared files should typically be merged in both directions 
(with any necessary conditionals introduced) until those are the only 
differences between the two places.  Changes from gnulib do need 
submitting to glibc as individual logical changes and reviewing as usual, 
but if the change only relates to portability / cases not used in glibc, 
the review can be only for coding style issues rather than substance.
