Possibly useful patches for uClibc 0.9.33.2
While building a cross-compiler targeting Alpine, I had a look at what patches Buildroot and Gentoo were applying to the toolchain, and found some they were using that we weren’t. Among these, a casual glance made some look not especially useful for us. The rest looked like they may be useful, or at any rate, looked like I didn’t understand well enough what they were doing to have even a casual judgment about their usefulness. I thought I’d link to these patches in our bugtracker so that someone more familiar with the toolchain sources might have a look at them, and make a more considered judgment about whether they might be useful for us too.
http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/tree/toolchain/uClibc has three patches with 0.9.33.2 in the title. Looking a them casually, they look like they’re porting some glibc functionality over to uClibc, rather than fixing bugs. But perhaps it’s very useful functionality, or perhaps I’ve misread them. Someone who’s more steeped in the uClibc source should have a look.
