... that.  (Plus the GDB stuff I promised to look into.)

I'm not sure if that's a useful thing to spend time on, right now.  I
think it'll be better if we first integrate into glibc upstream the
changes that are non-controversial on our own side, which only touch Hurd
code, etc.  Then, for the rest of the changes, those which also touch
generic glibc code, we should then discuss these individually.
