Is this what is holding up the libvirt ITP?
No, I think that would just be Eric's schedule.
Meanwhile, libtirpc-0.2.4 has been released, but this particular
problem probably remains .
The issue is an upstream one, and as you note, exists even on glibc
platforms. The function originates in sunrpc code, which is now
maintained as libtirpc, but because it was treated as a generic
networking function in glibc (declared in <netinet/in.h>), it is still
provided even if the now-obsolete RPC code is not (IOW if glibc is
configured w/o --enable-obsolete-rpc).
Since these are just redundant declarations and not conflicting ones,
each existing for good reason, and the identical situation exists on
glibc platforms, I don't think this is really an issue that needs to be
addressed at this time. If a real-world failure does occur, we can
reassess the situation then.
