Correct - these APIs are being standardized by POSIX, and this patchset aims at enabling them. Ulrich Drepper (glibc's maintainer) has already written the necessary glibc modifications to enable robust pthread_mutex_t mutexes, so once the new syscalls are accepted by the upstream kernel, glibc support should follow soon.
