I think the libc changes sound fine, but I'm not an expert there.

If you want to move headers around, I vote for leaving a header where it=20
is now (don't symlink) but have it include the one from include/crypto.

I've had negative experiences in the past with headers turning into=20
symlinks between updates. If we don't have to, I'd vote we don't do that.=

Take care,
