No, that's only fixing a symptom. glibc simply doesn't support running
on an older version than what it was compiled against; the problem is
not limited to epoll, it can potentially happen with any symbol. The
right way to build a package that runs on both old and new glibcs is
to build it against the old one, anything else is asking for trouble.
