I understand that, but I do not want to wait until it is fixed in Debin.

My Problem is:
I downloaded glibc sources with apt-get (in testing), ran prep.sh and then I was looking for the file you mentioned. Where is it? Do you have a patch that applies to the package source?
Or even better, do you have the .deb files for testing somewhere to download?

If I simply change (in linuxthreads/sysdep/unix/sysv/linux/not-cancel.h) from:

 INLINE_SYSCALL (osf_wait4, 4, pid, stat_loc, options, NULL)


# define waitpid_not_cancel(pid, stat_loc, options) \
 wait4( pid, stat_loc, options, NULL )

all is well - I understand the performance benefits of the inlining,
but since x86 is NPTL anyway, perhaps this is an okay solution?

I'm guessing that there is an Alpha-related optimizer bug perhaps?
Or that the inline_syscall4 in sysdep/unix/alpha/sysdep.h is somehow broken?
