perl: arm non-IEEE fp rounding patch obsolete?
I'm looking at non-upstreamed Debian perl patches, and I figured I'd
check with you before dropping this one from 5.8.7-9 (Dec 2005):
> Subject: Skip two Math::Complex tests on the arm architectures.
> Some tests fail on ARM due to non-IEEE fp rounding rules in the kernel
> fp emulation.
The skipped tests pass if I unapply the patch and run the tests on agricola.d.o.
Is there a chance this is still needed on systems without a floating point
coprocessor or something like that?
apt-get source perl && cd perl-5.10.1 && patch -Rp1 < debian/patches/debian/arm_fp.diff && prove lib/Math/Complex.t
