I believe you missed my point. The 2.1 series glibc is not only intended
to be used with 2.1 kernel headers, but I believe that it incorporates
some of the fixes you are looking for. There are some fundamental changes
in the header structure of the 2.1 kernels and this is only reflected in
the 2.1 series glibc. So, match a glibc version to your kernel headers
version, both in the 2.1 series and you should find your bug is repaired.
