The test case is a separate program [1] compiled with [2] (the
test_y2038 make target)

The glibc under test is installed on rootfs run by QEMU for ARM.

The lack of redirection, when I keep lib<name>_hidden_proto/
lib<name>_hidden_def for __mq_timedsend_time64, is seen when I debug
with GDB the 'test_y2038' program.

The glibc compiles correctly.

It seems like not removing lib<name>_hidden_proto/ lib<name>_hidden_def
for __mq_timedsend_time64 in glibc sources prevents the redirection on
installed glibc / headers when 'test_y2038' program is run.

Unfortunately, mine Y2038 tests are a set of compiled programs (it is a
'legacy' code) and have nothing in common with glibc test suite.

The workflow is as follows (standard Yocto/OE):

1. Built the glibc and prepare "package" for other recipes.

2. For tests get the glibc "package" as a prerequisite. Use its
exported headers and libraries to build tests. Prepare test "package"

3. Install both above packages to rootfs

4. Run the rootfs with QEMU.

Ok. I will dig the object files and generated temp files.

As fair as I can tell the weak_alias () is necessary for correct
operation of mq_timedsend when external programs call it.

Glibc internally defines __mq_timedsend (also for archs with
__WORDSIZE==64), but it exports mq_timedsend (and user space programs
call it). One needs an alias (at least a weak one) between mq_timedsend
and __mq_timedsend{_time}. Am I correct?
