How much effort would it be to patch libc 4.6.27? I assume from
the fact that you haven't just done it that it isn't trivial. Is a
patch available anywhere or is everybody supposed to live on the
bleeding edge of 4.7.4 these days?
Yes, this is what I'm told.

If it's `just' been ported is it any more stable than 4.7.4? (I
have never used 4.7.4, I have only hearsay to go on.)
It only supports the ELF format, so we can't use it yet. In any case,
I wouldn't want to use something that has just been ported. The port
hasn't even been released yet.
