Out of curiosity why don't you want to use NPTL with the latest uClibc?
If i remember correctly using anything other than NPTL is not recommended.
You could use a trick similar to
toolchain/gcc/*/powerpc-link-with-math-lib.patch.conditional for this
patch but in a reverse fashion (the gcc patch is applied for powerpc
only, you could apply for everything except sparc, though you'd had to
check if it's the only affected arch - it's a build issue so it
shouldn't be difficult).
The patch conditions are set in toolchain/gcc/gcc-uclibc-4.x.mk
Since the patch fixes issues i don't think Peter would disagree in
applying it.
