Thanks for merging them. Hopefully, it won't make the autobuilders
explode too much.

Which ones exactly? The big fat patches we are downloading from
fedorahosted.org? Our patches?

All our patches are really specific to uClibc support, and seeing the
number of glibc-isms in elfutils, I am not sure the maintainers will be
interested in making it uClibc friendly. But it's maybe worth trying.

One nice thing that could be done is migrate the linux-kernel-module.c
thing to use nftw(), so we could drop the fts() mess.
