I think you're right.

Right. I believe the original intent was to include klibc in the
kernel tree, so this would have existed because of that.
There's no sign of that in the current klibc.git, but I think it might
have gone through "git filter-branch" at some point after it was
decided not to include it upstream. In any case, this was already
broken for as long as klibc has been separate.
