I expect that many (most?) of these changes are already in Gnulib, so the result should be easier for you to generate than the original (and also be easier for me to review).

I agree that syncing first with gnulib is the way to go.  Also,
Arnold, I think you should be aware that glibc is coming up on a
release freeze, so reviewers' time is going to be focused on
higher-urgency stuff for the next month or so.  I will try to find
time to assist with these patches but it won't be till January.
