It'd probably not that simple, because self/ is actually just a
magic retry on the pid variable, so in the end you'd be just opening
/proc/<callerpid>/fd. Exposing fd there with a magic retry would expose
the fd of the _caller_ in all /proc/*/, which is not what we want: we
want the fd/ there to be per-pid.

I see #ifdef __linux__ there so I guess adding #ifdef __GNU__ there
would be fine.

I'd say so, so we can keep notice that there's something to fix there,
and not forget to run the tests.

I assume you have tested your glibc patch with your own baked test?
