It should be possible to ascertain this by looking at the changelog
for libc6 and dpkg.  This problem first occurred with the `u' series
of libc6, right?  That was compiled on Sep 19.  The next version of
dpkg was, compiled on Sep 21.  It's possible that that
version of dpkg wasn't yet compiled with a `u' libc6, but it's better
to be conservative.

So you should use
Conflicts: dpkg (>=, dpkg (<=
