2.0.90 is just the current working version number for 2.1.  I don't
expect it to be released any time soon.

I suppose it's up to Helmut if he wants to include Thorston's patch
for 2.0.x.  My preference would be to wait until Ulrich includes in
2.0.5.  Unlike, H.J. Lu, Ulrich is very good about releasing bug fixes
and minor enhancements to the current stable version of glibc, even
while development is going on for the next major release.
