I see, thanks for the clarification. I'll now try to get this installed on my T1000.

libklibc and klibc-utils (both 2.0.4-11+sparc64.1) from "unreleased" work like a charm for me on my T1000:

root@v245:~# uname -a
Linux v245 4.14.0-3-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Debian 4.14.12-2 (2018-01-06) sparc64 GNU/Linux

Fortunately I still had a SATA disk (from V245 and later V445, hence the hostname is still "v245") with an older libklibc installation and working initrd which I could use for the update.

Thanks for fixing klibc.
