Squeeze reached end of life.
Package libc6 in wheezy is patched against the bug.
Package libc6 in jessie is not vulnerable as it uses a newer libc6
release.

So I think we should close this bug and concentrate on updating our
mesa code to the newest version instead of patching some old version.

Best regards

Heinrich
