Actually, after more thought, I believe that the patch itself is not causing binary incompatibility.
The library built on a kernel-patched system will be binary incompatible with a library built
on a previous system, regardless of the patch I presented earlier, because new mutex alignment
requirements will have changed the size and layout of library objects. Comments are welcome.
