About the only think I can see that would cause a bit of a pause is
the fact that you changed the calling arguments in telldir() by
removing "const", this would require a bump in the version number of
libc to prevent binaries linked with old libc versions getting the new
API.  I believe that his would be a bump in the major version of libs
which is not done lightly.

What you have done looks fine to me.
