I tried the upgrade on my netwinder and there was no problem:
netwinder:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo
Processor : StrongARM-110 rev 3 (v4l)
BogoMIPS : 185.54
Features : swp half 26bit fastmult
CPU implementer : 0x44
CPU architecture: 4
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0xa10
CPU revision : 3
Hardware : Rebel-NetWinder
Revision : 52ff
Serial : 0000000000000ce7
netwinder:~# uname -a
Linux netwinder 2.6.18-4-footbridge #1 Mon Mar 26 16:11:07 BST 2007 armv4l GNU/Linux
netwinder:~# dpkg -s libc6
Is it perhaps an issue of which kernel in use when glibc is upgraded?
