Mike Frysingers patch fixing asm/elf.h and asm/page.h compile problem

There are a few patches required to compile glibc 2.8.90 on alpha. I'll attach them; Please consider them for inclusion. Jakub, please also consider to include these patches upstream, but note: Some of those patches are already committed somewhere I expect.

Comment 4 Ulrich Drepper 2008-09-17 02:49:58 UTC
These are changes which have to go in upstream.  File the bug in the upstream BZ.  You might as well assign the new bug directly to rth@gcc.gnu.org since rth has to check in the changes.

Comment 5 Oliver Falk 2008-09-17 08:49:21 UTC
Reported upstream. See 'External Bugs' for reference.
Ulrich, how can we make sure that these upstream fixes find their way into Fedora? Isn't Fedora glibc a separate branch of upstream glibc or so!?

Comment 6 Ulrich Drepper 2008-09-17 12:37:54 UTC
rawhide always follows the cvs head.  There is nothing special to do.
