So, the "upstream" rule here is violated. Instead, you want to change
thousands of spec files because of a theoretical problem that can only
affect users who don't set up a per user build environment on a multi-user
system? Loyalty finds an end here. The mktemp buildroot in spec files
would be really disappointing decision.

$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/macros 
redhat-rpm-config-8.0.45-6
$ rpm --eval %_tmppath
/var/tmp

could be modified more quickly than applying a bigger buildroot patch
to the code.
