This to me is the only acceptable way to go.
For the record, Ryan has sent me off-list a tarball with the first load of
patches for chapter 5. I'll be creating a user account on the LFS server so
he can keep the patches there and update them, etc.
My thoughts on the issue: I'd very much like to see this resolved, it'd be
great if this can be done with the LFS-5.0 release as well. Even if this is
before the next Glibc release, at least we'll be ready for it.
I'm still primarily concentrating on the PLFS stuff, so this will be put into
Bugzilla, at least until Ryan (and whoever decide to help out with that
effort) has created all the necessary patches.
It's in bugzilla under bug #521
