Package: glibc
Version: 2.24-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

posix/tst-getaddrinfo.c is causing glibc to FTBFS on tests.reproducible-builds.org:


The attached patch should fix this; I gave a more detailed description in the upstream bug report.

It would be good if this were already applied to the Debian glibc so that we can begin to see diffoscope output again and work on its reproducibility.
