Something's gone wrong with the generation of version-info.h, and
somehow it's choked on parsing /proc/version (I think). Can you delete
both glibc directories (and /tools/include/asm-generic if you still
have it) and start the glibc build again?

Also, please don't top-post. People will really appreciate it.
