I think it might work in the "special" case RP mentioned in commit message and I've tried to describe (I admit quite badly) in my e-mail). With qemuarm64 I can see from bitbake -e: OE qemuarm64@ ~/build/oe-core $ grep ^OLDEST_KERNEL= env.*glibc* env.glibc:OLDEST_KERNEL="3.14" env.nativesdk-glibc:OLDEST_KERNEL="3.2.0" Because the nativesdk-glibc doesn't use the aarch64 OVERRIDE OE qemuarm64@ ~/build/oe-core $ grep ^OVERRIDES= env.*glibc* env.glibc:OVERRIDES="linux:aarch64:build-linux:pn-glibc:qemuall:qemuarm64:aarch64:nodistro:class-target:forcevariable:libc-glibc" env.nativesdk-glibc:OVERRIDES="linux:x86-64:build-linux:pn-nativesdk-glibc::nodistro:class-nativesdk:forcevariable:libc-glibc:virtclass-nativesdk" so it's using "default" OLDEST_KERNEL meta/conf/bitbake.conf:OLDEST_KERNEL = "3.2.0" meta/conf/bitbake.conf:OLDEST_KERNEL_aarch64 = "3.14" The actual SDK (e.g. meta-toolchain) on the other hand is built with aarch64 in OVERRIDES, so 3.14 made it into the setup environment script even when the glibc included there was built against 3.2.0 OE qemuarm64@ ~/build/oe-core $ grep ^OVERRIDES= env.meta-toolchain OVERRIDES="linux:aarch64:build-linux:pn-meta-toolchain:qemuall:qemuarm64:aarch64:nodistro:class-target:forcevariable:libc-glibc" So this might be useful for cases where target specific OLDEST_KERNEL is higher than the OLDEST_KERNEL used by nativesdk-glibc, but in my case it isn't enough and I had to lower the kernel version in both (which now I'm testing to see if Khem's and glibc's commit message was right about the x86/x86_64 compatibility - I've already verified that building arm image with 2.6.32 OLDEST_KERNEL causes postinst in do_rootfs to fail, I'm waiting for local build to finish to see the actual error. Next step is to see if arm binaries built with 2.6.32 nativesdk-glibc (on x86 host) work in arm image built with 3.2.0 glibc - this wasn't clear to me from the commit message.
