The glibc in stable won't be updated. Stable is set in stone for
better and worse. It might be possible to fix this in a point release
but I'm not too optimistic. Replacing glibc on all archs when just
amd64 and (so far) just mysql is affected is a big deal.

But fortunately we have stinkypete on amd64.debian.net were we already
have a few amd64 specific patches to make thinks work, like cdrdao. An
upload of a fixed glibc is going there as we speak, Frederik beat me
to it this morning.
