Comment #6 From Jakub Jelinek (jakub@xxxxxxxxxx) 2009-06-11 16:40:37 EDT
Unfortunately no, this can't be backported. The symbol is exported as
@@GLIBC_2.11 symbol, F11 has only glibc 2.10. If we add a single
GLIBC_2.11 symbol, we'd have to add them all, which means at least wait
until glibc 2.11 is released (in 4-5 months approximately).
