Can someone verify the fix, or give me a suggestion about how to verify it?
It wasn't fixed, just worked around. The real fix is being checked into GCC
today, so too late for F9.
Anyway, to verify cacoshl etc., just look for
in TESTING DETAILS in glibc 2.8-2 vs. 2.8-3 ppc64 build.log.
In 2.8-2 you will see a lot of errors, in 2.8-3 it isn't present (because the
On ppc/ppc64 you need to ignore all the power6/ failures, because the lame koji
buildboxes don't have Altivec support, to get a clean testing you need to build
on Power6 or at least some Power box with Altivec ISA (e.g. G5).
Thanks for the info, Jakub. Since we have a workaround in F9 I'm going to move
this off the blocker list.
I'm moving it to F9Target, under the assumption that the real fix will show up
as a F9 update.
