You are right it should.

I was trying to persuade Richard Earnshaw to let me delete the 
newlib/libc/sys/arm directory and just use the code in libgloss, but he 
objected and I have not yet had time to go through his alternative 
suggestion and implement it.

So please, do feel free to submit a patch to synchronize libgloss and 
newlib and I'll review it and apply it.
