nss is broken

I compiled glibc and the Hurd with my modified mig.  Actually, only four
RPCs were affected: io_identity (because of ino64_t), io_read, io_write,
io_seek and file_set_size.

Now, the system boots up fully, and I get a login prompt, yeah!

However, something is still broke: NSS.  At least this is my conclusion
based on the following "undeniable facts" (hey wolfgang :)

* I can not use any network services, syslogd, inetd, ping, they all
  complain about missing information about the services they want to use.
* I can not resolve user names!  inetd complains about the unknown user
  names root and nobody, the password server crashes, I can not login.
  After removing the password server, I could get root with "su 0".
* Someone else reported NSS problems with newer glibcs before, but I forgot
  who it was and where he did report (maybe on IRC).
* NSS was broken before with statically linked programs (see Debian bug
  reports for libc0.2(-dev).

So, it's time to look at the NSS situation a bit further ;)  In the
meantime, I can check out if I can isolate the problems in libthreads.
It seems to me we are getting closer to a fully working system again.
