Heh.  And I don't even know for sure if this was the issue causing the
testsuite failures.  :-P

It does really look like a bug, though.

(Re: "crawling around the innards":  That's what happens when my most
recent coding was trying to get signalfd to work on a really old glibc
but a fairly new kernel.  :-) )

Somebody from SuSE seems to have commented.  *crossing fingers*...

It seems fairly obvious from comparing 32-bit and 64-bit glibc what's wrong
with the constants being used, as long as someone actually does that.

(I'm just hoping it doesn't get closed as a duplicate of bug 333: "build
failures aren't to be reported here".)
