Paul just pointed out to me that glibc 2.3 wont work on 2.5 ppc32
kernels because it has a broken inline syscall macro which doesnt
treat a syscall as a function call.

Steve: are we OK on the 64 bit port? In 2.5 Im looking at optimising
the syscall entry/exit like ppc32 and its going to be painful if it
will require an update to glibc just for that.
