I have seen some patches got in uClibc upstream some weeks ago (-> inactivity).
But anyway, a 1st try...
Look at OpenSSL and LibreSSL... Might be we see some competition or
rebirth starting here, too?

My POV (from my experiences) is most embedded projects are not really
interested in upstream work or keep their own patches (this seems to
be easier).
An example:
Recently, I pointed to [0], but the maintainer of the project did not
give any feedback to Bernd (requested a simple S-o-b).
What I want to say it is not only a problem of the uClibc maintainer :-).
