Post event it's hard to tell. I previously removed obsolete
firmware, modules and udev directories, then ran the commands from a
previous thread (cut and paste, no --force).

# pacman -Syu --ignore glibc
# pacman -S glibc

The current directory was NOT /lib, and as the system is now pretty
much as loaded as prior, fuser /usr/lib (or /lib) shows no results.
