commit e5b8756dc2355c315247b710da8d50d48b7a9728

    Remove pre-Python-3.4 compatibility from
    Since we have consensus on requiring Python 3.4 or later to build
    glibc, it follows that compatibility with older Python versions is
    also no longer relevant to auxiliary Python scripts for use in glibc
    development.  This patch removes such compatibility code from (compatibility code needed for 3.4, which lacks
    the newer subprocess interface, is kept).  Because is not itself called from the glibc build system,
    this patch is independent of the configure checks for having a
    new-enough Python version, which are only relevant to uses of Python
    from the main build and test process.
    Tested with building glibc for aarch64-linux-gnu
    (with Python 3.4 to make sure that still works).
    	* scripts/ Remove compatibility for missing
    	os.cpu_count and re.fullmatch.
