This particular issue was occurring with a modified 2.4.26 kernel; I
know some code from the 2.6 kernels was backported so it's possible
that's what was happening.

This seems to conflict with the docs for building glibc that I read over
the weekend.... Not that I am an expert - it took me all weekend to get
a working toolset - but ISTR the docs saying that you should use the
most recent kernel headers you can; I used 2.6.14 and that seemed to
work.... I'd be interested in finding some docs for building glibc/gcc....
