David already knows my position.  There are not anymore plans to make
the new ld.so compatible with the old one (this would probably only
have negative effects).  Instead I would prefer to add some kind of
mark in the ld.so.conf file.  It should tag the directories in there.
The tag should distinguish the use os ld-linux.so.1 and ld-linux.so.2.

Now one could of course ask why not introduce a new conf file.  I
think it would be bad since inventing another file for the same
purpose would confuse the people and hopefully soon all confi files
are clean again since all libc-5 based binaries are gone.
