ldd /usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime/lib/ returns nothing and instead segfaults.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime/lib/server ldd /usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime/lib/ avoids the segfault.

I tried archlinux's jdk, adoptium eclipse jdk, oracle jdk, and many other jdk flavors. I even compiled openjdk myself. all result in a same issue.

This was not an issue in previous versions of glibc.
lddd doesn't show similar crashes in for any other installed package. I tested by running lddd with and without jdk installed.
This task depends upon

I've just commited a patch which will be part of the next glibc build when gcc 12.1 is out.
