Hmm, I am not aware of any fix needed for aix at the moment, and I don't
really get anything out of the quote either, which fix do you mean? You
mean xlC thread support?

Looking at the old thread, there are lots of feasible workarounds
without having to patch anything, so I am not sure why you want to patch

Well, the soltuion for not wanting to patch would be to not patch. Also, your
problem with your legal department seems to be a problem with your legal
department, and the solution would be to solve that problem - a release of
libev will not fix any legal or procedural issues.
