drepper already voiced his opinion -- these embedded cpu optimizations werent
going to be added to the main glibc tree. but he has no problem with them
being "dumped" into the glibc-ports tree and because of the way things are
structured, that should work for you.
so if you have some per-cpu trees to overlay, e-mail them to the glibc-ports
list so they can get merged.
