I doesn’t make sense to graft “glibc-intermediate” because it’s only
used in ‘static-bash-for-glibc’, which statically links against it.  The
situation is similar with the “-boot0” packages: they are not referenced
by the packages we use.

So I think 848f550f2c105326dc3be4033c8aaf35ec21cde4 was a good idea.
f00b85ff8d34df0a1879e593d4a85629b8586af7 does something similar.
