The set of packages involved in the glibc transition is ready and this
bug is the only thing blocking the migration to testing. The patch
fixing that issue is being developed upstream, but not fully ready yet.

I am therefore downgraded the severity of this bug given that:
- The x32 port is not an official port and doesn't have testing. Having
  this glibc package in testing won't change anything for that port.
- The libc6-x32 is affected by the issue, but x32 syscalls are disabled
  by default in the debian kernels.

This doesn't mean that the bug won't be fixed. Once the package has
migrated to testing and we have a patch upstream, I'll do another upload
fixing the issue.
