More data points:-
- "make check" still passes with the patch applied
- Debian has integrated the (similar) patch:-
glibc (2.3.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* GOTO Masanori <gotom at debian.or.jp>
- debian/patches/librt-mips.dpatch: librt is not worked on
mips/mipsel architecture, we apply it until sarge will be
released. Thanks to Guido Guenther <agx at sigxcpu.org>.
- debian/patches/glibc23-ctype-compat.dpatch: added.
glibc 2.3.x changes some symbols (__ctype_b, __ctype_toupper,
__ctype_tolower) as hidden attribute. These symbols that are
crashing the old 2.2.x dynamic linking code in static binaries
are now exported.
This patch is originally pulled from RedHat patch, I modified
it for current debian glibc. Closes: #165554
