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
