That would be _awesome_.

Please just be aware that this meta layer has some fixes for some
packages (for Y2038 ready glibc).
Little by little. As long as we have a well-defined test plan, a
well-known list of issues, and follow a strict 'upstream first' policy
in addressing them (e.g. no fixes in layers that are 'forever
pending', un-upstreamable or have been rejected by upstreams), we'll
eventually get there.

And absolutely no promise to make this available anywhere except
master. If someone is using ancient yocto releases, they should run a
retro computing museum rather than critical infrastructure.
