uClibc patches

I should have mentioned it before, and I don't know if it will make a 
difference. The embryo toolchain shouldn't get any uclibc patches, assuming 
they're linked to your host system's glibc. The butterfly toolchain should 
get the uclibc patches with --host/build/target=uclibc. I have been planning 
to add a /tools/share/config.site in the adjusting page to set 
these --build/host/target values for all packages. A couple months ago I was 
able to get to chapter 6 with uclibc and gcc-4.1.1 with ssp disabled, but 
this was before fortified_source was added, I think I did it with both 0.9.28 
and uclibc-snapshot.

I'd like to make the hardened-specs header modular before trying uclibc again, 
so that ssp, and/or fortify_source, can be disabled for uclibc if its causing 
the problem. There's also the fastmath issue I haven't looked into.
