I think using said patch is probably a sensible solution, where can I find
this patch? Also in the current systems I've got, I've neglected to put a
DEFAULT symbol version at all, meaning everything is using symbol versions
right down to GLIBC_2.0 etc. Is there anyway to do a symbol version bump
to GLIBC_2.11 without having to completely start from scratch? Obviously
things are going to need to be recompiled anyway due to the elf machine
number, but it would be nice to be able to rebuild everything using the
currently built packages, rather than cross building everything from
scratch again. Obviously this isn't a problem with the elf machine number
due to ELF_MACHINE_ALT1 as you mentioned, but is this possible with a
symbol version bump such as this?
