M4 Experts:

Since this issue seems to be in a standstill, I've put together a patch that I can use locally.
I'm seeking input for this patch I've produced for m4 package.  I'd appreciate your thoughts.

I misstated earlier that the latest Fedora is going in this direction.  This appears to be a glibc only issue as my build is pulling in glibc and not playing nicely with m4.
According to https://pkgs.org/download/glibc-devel, fedora rawhide is pulling in the latest version glibc-devel 2.33.
I'm wondering if there is a short-term work-around I can use.

It's not just Intel processors.

64-bit ARM processors that support scalable vectors (SVE) support
vectors of up to 2084 bits, and they have 32 vector registers which would
require 8Kbytes for the SVE state alone if the implementation supports
the full 2kbits.
