[Bug nptl/2612] New: glibc-20060306T1239 build problems on alpha
This is the output from make check for glibc build on alpha.
FC4/5 seems to ignore this failures. Because this is build for alpha and not for
x86, I report it here, not at fedore bugzilla.
make check should run without error.

The problem with "write successful" which should be block, is
the same on alpha and x86.
The test tf_write() writes to a pipe, and this should block the call.
"If the O_NONBLOCK flag is clear, a write request may cause the thread to block,
but on normal completion it will return
Independently from the ulimit and PIPE_SIZE values, the write() call blocks
for linux alpha and x86 with kernel 2.6.15 beginning with a size of 1024*1024 byte.
With this patch to tf_write() the tests runs without problem:
