i think this should have priority
(abi visible bug, should not wait for arch/bits cleanup)

there are no known bugs in the current code, but
tsearch_small.c would be an improvement over it.
(and twalk,tfind should be separate tu)

random stuff:
- linux 4.* uapi (includes mlock2, but a lot of other stuff too)
- symbol versioning (for at least gcc-6
- __cxa_thread_atexit_impl ? (i expect this to come up in real code)
- stdatomic.h
- string functions correctness
- regex bre extensions \+ \? \|
- regcomp increase tre_stack_new limit
- str{f,p}time %z %Z %k %l ?
- noreturn __assert_fail ?
- hidden visibility for internal functions
- compiler builtins in libc (sqrt, fabs, memcpy..)
- asm -> inline asm
- ld128 math
