I have a patch from Uli Drepper for this.

No, they are all in the CVS version (most in the glibc 2.2 branch).
We work hard to get Uli Drepper to release glibc 2.2.5. But there is
a patched glibc version in my directory on ftp.suse.com (as I already
wrote on this list). Since nearly no Linux Distributor uses a plain
release and the patches are all really small, I don't see a problem
that Linux distributors add them to their next release.
