AFAICS the patch is incorrect for tri-arch, it adds directories to the
include path for both the old and the new 32bit ABI at the same time.
This is addressed on mainline by
we need to integrate that with patch with Debian's /usr/include/<arch>
include directory, maybe using the multilib dir names, and providing
symlinks <multilibdir> -> <archdir>.
