Now when AVR32 support is finally dropped do you think this patch might
be accepted?

It still applies flawlessly on current master.

I build tested it on ARC and ARM. Note on ARM uClibc tests
(BR2_UCLIBC_INSTALL_TEST_SUITE) will be only compiled without errors
with uClibc-ng (BR2_UCLIBC_VERSION_NG), either BR2_UCLIBC_VERSION_0_9_33
or BR2_UCLIBC_VERSION_SNAPSHOT will fail on testsuite compilation but
that has nothing to do with current patch.
