 Well, given that your old patch did fix it and both you and I think
 this change should be equivalent (plus there was probably something on
 tech-userlevel at the time, which I'm feeling too lazy to dig out
 right now) I think we can call it fixed.

 It's in 4.0, and because it changes the libc ABI it's probably not a
 good candidate for a 3.x pullup, although I can probably prepare one
 if you or anyone else thinks it's worthwhile.
