The patch in question here is this:

And the fact that somewhere between corutils-8.15 and 8.17 these 
HAVE_RAW_DECL_* have disappeared from config.hin.
Without the above patch we run into an endless recursion loop: getcwd(), 
openat(), rpl_open(), get_name(), getcwd() ....
until we hit the max. stack limit and abort.

While the above patch seems to fix this for use, Nagendra's concern is whether 
there is more to the removal of these HAVE_RAW_DECL_* stuff, whether there are 
other problems with these
