       * Update Brazilian Portuguese debconf translation, by Felipe Augusto van de
	 Wiel.  Closes: #485381.
       * patches/any/cvs-getaddrinfo.diff: new patch from CVS to correctly
	 initialize internal resolver structures in getaddrinfo().  Closes:

       * any/cvs-tst-regex.diff: new patch from CVS to add a timeout to tst-regex.
	 Closes: #489856.
       * control.in/main: build depends on gcc-4.3 (>= 4.3.0-7), remove
       * Update Swedish debconf translation, by Martin Bagge.  Closes: #492191.
       * Revert the changes to patches/hppa/cvs-atomic.diff, it was not the cause
	 of the "tst-regex problem".
       * hppa/cvs-lowlevellock.diff: new patch from upstream to fix build of NPTL
	 glibc on hppa.  Closes: #486589.
       [ Petr Salinger]
       * debian/sysdeps/kfreebsd.mk: also use the bsm/ directory from kernel
       * kfreebsd/local-sysdeps.diff: update to revision 2265 (from glibc-bsd).
       * Disable call to "GL(dl_wait_lookup_done)" in linuxthreads builds. Proper
	 solution still have to be created. Stop crashes in mean time. See #489066.

	 types from hurd headers.  Bump the hurd-dev dependency version
       * patches/hurd-i386/cvs-fcntl-types.diff: New patch to include

       * patches/hurd-i386/local-tls.diff: Resync with upstream.
       * patches/hurd-i386/local-tls-support.diff: Make tls.h also include

       * patches/hurd-i386/submitted-trivial.diff: Remove, thanks to updated tls.h.
       [ Pierre Habouzit ]
       * Cherry-pick upstream fixes with respect to locale rwlocks, merge them into
	 patches/any/cvs-strerror_r.diff. Closes: #489906.

  Petr and Samuel changes only change code that is only built on the
Hurd and kFreeBSD. This glibc contains the fix for the horrible glibc
FTBFS on hppa, and you can see on buildd.org that it indeed built fine.

  I would like to see this glibc life in unstable not be too long (IOW
not the usual age-days 20 we usually have ;p), because many packages
(like cmake) need a fixed glibc to go in.

  Note: we may have a -14 as well, because of hppa again, as we may have
	a fix for *context() missing and in return fixing dirmngr on
	hppa, but we've had no time to evaluate it fully yet, and we
	felt like fixing the FTBFS was kind of urgent.  This "fix" would
	be quite important, but hppa only, for an already "broken" arch,
        so it would not worsen the situation.
