No, we can't. We don't provide any libc at all anymore. :)
Glibc builds a 32bit libc6 for amd64 and ia32-libs has depended on it
for the last few versions.
If you need this ancient, broken errno variable then you have to stick
with stable I guess. But it is out of our hands and in the hands of
the glibc team. reassigning the bug there.
