FEDORA-2021-16dc1f33af created by fweimer 3 months ago for Fedora 35
stable

This is a regular glibc maintenance update. It addresses a regression in pthread_cancel (spurious ESRCH errors) and fixes a bug where tools like top would not show all CPUs in the system. A minor security issue in the rarely-used mq_notify function is addressed (CVE-2021-38604).

Furthermore, the C.UTF-8 locale is replaced by its upstream implementation.
