Qemu test results:

Failed tests:

The allmodconfig build failures are mostly if not all the result of
enabling -Werror on test builds. The individual errors are too many
to list; the number of errors is listed in () after the build above.
Anyone interested can find build logs at
I am not entirely sure what to do about that - if history teaches a
lesson, new build failures may pile up faster than existing ones get
fixed, but then I am aware that several fixes are queued already. We'll
see how it goes. I'll monitor the situation until maybe -rc4 or -rc5 and
then decide if I disable -Werror in my test builds to catch any new "real"

The qemu runtime failure bisects to commit 694a1116b405 ("virtio: Bind
virtio device to device-tree node"), and reverting that commit fixes the
problem. With that patch applied, the virtio block device does not
instantiate on sparc64. This results in a crash since that is where the
test is trying to boot from.

Good news is that I don't see any new runtime warnings.
