Thanks all, it's now fixed in the master branch, the future Python 3.10.

Thanks Xavier de Gaye for the initial patch and reported the issue.

Thanks Peixing Xin for the final change which is now even better! 

Thanks also Thomas Petazzoni who maintained the downstream patch in buildroot.

See also discussion on PR 23886 about the technical change and the different tests that we run to ensure that the change doesn't break anything, and that it works as expected.

I'm really not comfortable at all to change the Python build system. It's very complex and fragile, I don't know it very well, so I'm not confident in what I am doing. For these reasons, I'm strongly against backporting the change to stable branches (3.8 and 3.9) and so I close the issue
