POSIX message queue has been known since POSIX standardized them in
1996, but AFAIK there's no major 3rd-party binaries which use mqueue.
If you know, please tell me, we enable mqueue at boot up time in
default on 2.6 kernel after sarge.

I agree with your argument about outdating glibc.  Regarding both
SLES9 and RHEL4, I think accelerating the release interval makes more

So I'm OK with Mattia's intension.
