fix sparc breakage
Applied in 4.0-3. Doesn't xorg-x11 need the patch as well?
yes, most likely it does...
Please file a bug report upstream with patch attached, and once the
patch is merged into upstream X.Org CVS, we will consider including
it in our X.Org rpms as well.

Include upstream bug URL here once filed upstream for tracking.
Closing "WONTFIX" as sparc is an unsupported platform, however you can
submit sparc related fixes to upstream X.Org at the URL in comment #4
above, and the changes will get included into future X.Org releases,
and will make it into rawhide for FC3.
Thanks for the URL Dan..
updating status to UPSTREAM for tracking.
The upstream bug report seems to have been ignored so far, and
the patch seems like it might cause problems on older Linux kernels
which X.Org may wish to support still. It's not confirmed, but
just a personal observation. I recommend discussing this patch
on the xorg mailing list with other developers, and working with
the community of developers to come up with a solution which is
considered safe to commit to CVS. Since we don't support sparc
architecture however, I don't see any reason to continue monitoring
this issue in the upstream bugzilla. Once the issue is fixed in
upstream CVS, and we're using Xorg sources based upon that, our
rpms will eventually have the fixes included as well.
Closing as "WONTFIX"
