I can see how "ppc64" benefits from these simple patches,
but not where it harms other architectures.

There is the thing of migrating from unstable to testing
when it is build for all architecture,
but that doesn't apply for archs not yet offical supported.

Please explain the risks of appling the requested patches.

I think it is making another architecture possible,
which makes it worth.
