glibc 2.17 and eglibc 2.17 are so close that it should be fine
to test just one. I'd think the change should be fine for libstdc++.

Upstream will be working to reduce the differences between eglibc
and glibc so eventually these reports will just say "glibc" in
their testing notes.

Does that make sense?
