We've had some discussions on the glibc libc-alpha list.  One issue
for glibc is that it's natural to use it in IFUNC resolvers, but you
cannot call non-static, non-hidden functions from IFUNC resolvers
reliably because of the relocation dependency.  This means that a
traditional system call wrapper in won't necessarily work for
this.  I don't think a decision has been reached yet.  I expect the
discussion to start again after the upcoming release.
