New submission from Gregory P. Smith <greg at krypto.org>:

When the C implementation of functools.lru_cache was added in bpo/issue14373, it appears to have omitted setting `.__defaults__` on its wrapped function.

Python 3.10.0a7+ (heads/master-dirty:823fbf4e0e, May  1 2021, 11:10:30) [Clang 12.0.0 (clang-1200.0.32.29)] on darwin

>>> import functools
>>> def func(b=5): pass
>>> @functools.lru_cache
... def cached_func(b=5): pass
>>> func.__defaults__
>>> cached_func.__defaults__
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'functools._lru_cache_wrapper' object has no attribute '__defaults__'

functools.update_wrapper() does set __defaults__ so this appears to just be an oversight in Modules/_functoolsmodule.c.
