Summary:                    posix_memalign() declared but not implemented
Description: 
Hello,
For a reason totally ununderstandable for me, 'Vapier' made a correction
19 months ago to uClibc and this correction is not present in latest
uClibc release (0.9.28.3) Why such a delay.....

The facts:
posix_memalign() function is declared in header file (stdlib.h)
posix_memalign() is implemented nowhere

=>compilations run smoothly
=>linking final application sucks (of course)
For example try 'parted version 1.8.2'

Either the function is present or not. But half done job is idiot.
Provided patch to drop in "buildroot/toolchain/uClibc"
to implement the function in next snapshot.

Thank you for read (and fixing).

So.. why do you file this against buildroot and not properly against
uClibc?

If a correction is not released after 19 months, it will never be, no ?

Please don't reflect/think too much. You force users that will use 'gnu
parted 1.8' to ask google why 'link sucks' then find a correction then...
then...
Just for a missing implementation of the function.
You just include the patch, with applying only on 0.9.28.x until vapier
release a correct uclibc. Where is the problem ?
