Re: [PATCH] glibc 2.7 compilation failure with GCC 4.2.x due to 486+-specific memmove() redeclaration and _FORTIFY_SOURCEry

Er. OK, sorry, I managed to forget my own subject line. :)

I patched both because this was a short-term kludge and it was trivial
to do so (I just didn't see the point in spamming you with essentially
the same text twice over).
