Lets call it a soft-block :) It is just that I hate the files getting
out of sync. We risk using slightly differently named constants. It
looks like the 2.26 release will be next week, so hopefully the freeze
will be over end of this week.

Could you post the fix to libc-alpha already and then ping it next
week once the tree open up again? Then I'll push your patch to
elfutils.

Thanks,

Mark
