No doubt there are things that will broke then with libc_r, but I think 
that's quite minor. Providing stubs returning an error is the best we can 
do. Every other option (except implementing all functionality in the 
libc_r, of course :) breaks things even more.

I already put together a preliminary patch I and Stathis are going to do 
some tests with at first - my only real worry is whether a functionality 
we'll open for the world (barriers, spinlocks etc) is functional at 
all ;).


Unless there will be objections, I plan to commit this somewhere in the 
next week.
