Yep. The m68k patch is now applied in the correct locations. However:

That one surely not. Due to this and #22972, gdb hasn't been
compilable since ages for m68k now :-( (First #22972 was the cause,
and then #28653 showed up.)

The reason for #28653: The threads patch changes semantics of some
common macros, but implements the additional semantics only for i386.
It would be some non-trivial work to port this to m68k. Not
impossible, but I currently don't have a few days spare time for doing
this. (And it's unlikely that I will have that much spare time in the
near future... :-)

If the threads patch makes problems on i386, too, or at least doesn't
work correctly, I'd advocate for removing it.
