    Thats intentional.

    You want a newer glibc basically (or for specific cases just fix the headers)
    The point is that glibc<->app and kernel<->glibc do not match. Eg glibc had
    32bit uid_t well before the kernel did - as a result moving the kernel
    to 32bit uid has been almost painless.
