That's what I told them to use instead of the * && !defined(_gnu_hurd_) * which the Debian maintainer had come up with: no changes needed for us once we have readlinkat implemented -- real soon now, as you say.

Ugh, how horrible hack in insserv...

Anyway, see
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/libc-alpha/2009-09/msg00058.html and
later, hopefully Roland will accept something :)

insserv is now working around this by also detecting whether __stub_readlinkat is defined or not, and resorting to alternative code if it is.

Nevertheless, readlinkat, as well as other functions should be implemented. See /usr/include/gnu/stubs-32.h for a complete list; not all of them are likewise important, though.

needed for insserv which assumes it works. See other at functions, should probably not be hard
