Hi everyone,

With the stabilization of gcc-6.4.0, the uclibc build broke because the
eclass requires UCLIBC_VER to be define on uclibc systems else it will
die().  Since uclibc specific patches are no longer needed in gcc-6 and
above, we don't want to error out in the eclass when the patchset is not

Note that there are some musl specific patches which I would like to
migrate out of the overlay and into the tree.  In a future patch, I'd
like to duplicate the uclibc code for musl in toolchain.eclass.

Feedback welcome.

Subject: [PATCH] eclass/toolchain.eclass: do not die if uclibc patches are not

gcc-6 and above no longer needs uclibc specific patches, so we don't die if
the patchset is not available.  We do, however, still apply it if UCLIBC_VER
is defined in the ebuild to future proof the code in case we need to reintroduce
the patchset in the future.
