I'm aware of that, but Git needs to build with glibc 2.7+ (or was it 2.6?), hence the need for this compat layer.
Right. But perhaps the compatibility layer could provide the functionality with the names available in the later glibc versions (and on *BSD)? That would make it easier to read the code that is using it.
