I am willing to change my patch to implement Andrew's suggestion, but
before I do, does anyone else have other suggestions regarding the
name for the file.

BTW, I would be more inclined to use solib-lm-tbd.c or perhaps
solib-lm-legacy.c.  (The only problem that I have with "tbd" is that
it often means "to be determined" - or at least that's what I first
thought of when I saw it.) Anyway, one of these names would cause this
file to remain grouped with the other solib-* files.  The use of
either "tbd" or "legacy" in the name still enables all of the legacy
file to be found via ``ls *tbd*''.
