The first production batch of Jolla smartphones has been fully booked by consumers and selected sales channels. Jolla launched its first smartphone at the #JollaLoveDay event inMay. At the same time, Jolla kicked off an online pre-order campaign, which reached its first batch limit by mid-July. Online pre-orders were received from 136 countries in all.

I'm one of those who pre-ordered, so it's good news for me. They won't reveal just how many people placed a pre-order, but they do state that a typical batch (as mentioned) is about 50000 units.

The problem is caused by the simple fact of binary incompatibility between bionic and glibc. And since as you noted dynamic linking happens, bionic blobs render those GPU drivers useless for glibc based distros. So of course it's not the fault of libc, it's the fault of vendors not making these drivers open and / or producing them for glibc as well.

You get into the same sort of problems when using libraries generated from different C compilers.
