I flagged this out-of-date before reading the pinned comment. Sorry for that!

I'm currently needing a linux3 version of glibc, and just changing --enable-kernel=3.10.0 had been working so far. Would a glibc-linux3 package make sense at all?

The normal glibc v2.38 works perfectly fine with WSL 1, which is on Linux v4.4.0. There is no need to update & use glibc-linux4 at the moment AFAIK.

If you do need glibc-linux4 v2.38 as normal glibc will not work for you, please be sure to provide the details when you flag this package.

For those who use this in container on old hosts, line 52 in PKGBUILD (glibc-linux4.patch) needs to be uncommented, and clone3 syscalls needs to be removed as well

Unfortunately I still need this for systemd-nspawn on old hosts.

Good news, with they seem to have resolved the glibc=2.33 issue. \o/

Confirming, provides=("glibc=$pkgver") helps.

Perhaps provides array should include version as well:

:: glibc-linux4 and glibc are in conflict. Remove glibc? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing glibc breaks dependency 'glibc>=2.27' required by gcc-libs
