Oops, indeed - queued up the fix and will send it to Linus shortly -
thanks!

On the contrary - i am build testing every architecture on a daily
basis. (and sometimes i do it multiple times a day - yesterday i did 5
cross builds during the rename) In fact i am testing more architectures
than linux-next does.

Here's the log of the test i ran yesterday before i sent those bits to
Linus:

testing 24 architectures.
(warns) (warns)
testing alpha: -git: pass ( 24), -tip: pass ( 24)
testing arm: -git: fail ( 11), -tip: fail ( 13)
testing blackfin: -git: pass ( 3), -tip: pass ( 3)
testing cris: -git: fail ( 34), -tip: pass ( 20)
testing frv: -git: fail ( 13), -tip: fail ( 13)
testing h8300: -git: fail ( 441), -tip: fail ( 185)
testing i386: -git: pass ( 2), -tip: pass ( 5)
testing ia64: -git: fail ( 172), -tip: pass ( 160)
testing m32r: -git: pass ( 39), -tip: pass ( 39)
testing m68k: -git: pass ( 42), -tip: pass ( 42)
testing m68knommu: -git: fail ( 80), -tip: fail ( 80)
testing microblaze: -git: fail ( 14), -tip: fail ( 14)
testing mips: -git: pass ( 6), -tip: pass ( 6)
testing mn10300: -git: fail ( 10), -tip: fail ( 10)
testing parisc: -git: pass ( 26), -tip: pass ( 26)
testing powerpc: -git: fail ( 36), -tip: fail ( 45)
testing s390: -git: pass ( 6), -tip: pass ( 6)
testing score: -git: fail ( 13), -tip: fail ( 13)
testing sh: -git: fail ( 22), -tip: fail ( 19)
testing sparc: -git: pass ( 3), -tip: pass ( 3)
testing um: -git: pass ( 3), -tip: pass ( 3)
testing xtensa: -git: fail ( 46), -tip: fail ( 46)
testing x86-64: -git: pass ( 0), -tip: pass ( 0)
testing x86-32: -git: pass ( 0), -tip: pass ( 0)

In fact there are architectures that dont build in Linus's tree and
build in -tip:

testing cris: -git: fail ( 34), -tip: pass ( 20)

Because not only do i test every architecture i also try to fix upstream
bugs on non-x86 pro-actively. See for example this upstream fix:

8d7ac69: Blackfin: Fix link errors with binutils 2.19 and GCC 4.3

Nevertheless you are right that i should have caught this particular
PowerPC build bug - i missed it - sorry about that!

Thanks,

Ingo
