Package: cpio
Version: 2.11-8
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream experimental patch
User: debian-arm@lists.debian.org

cpio does not build against eglibc-2.16 due to gets having been removed
but embedded gnulib in package still referring to it.

Upstream bug links are in the patch. 

This patch makes it work by #ifdefing the offending line but the proper 
fix is a new upstream release using a newer gnulib.

This patch allows eglibc 2.16 to be uploaded and for the arm64 port to
proceed.

Apologies. Attached.

(note the bit about pestering upstream to fix this witha gnulib update)
