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.

alpha does not have __NR_creat (patch from gentoo)
Created attachment 314060 [details]
Oliver Falks patch to fix duplicate symbol __libc_alpha_cache_shape
Created attachment 314062 [details]
Richard Hendersons (rth) patch to fix PTR_MANGLE compile problem
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 email@example.com since rth has to check in the changes.
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!?
rawhide always follows the cvs head. There is nothing special to do.
