The current libc is missing my patches to fix pthread_attr_setstack()
and pthread_attr_getstack() for hppa.
HPPA is an architecture under which the stack grows up and the default
implementation does not take that into account.
The boehm-gc then uses the wrong stack values during garbase
collection initialization and thus every gcj built application
I will work with Aurelian on putting out a fixed libc, until then gcj
will not work correctly.
Sorry about the inconvenience. It appears that the glibc testsuite is
self-consistent, and because both set and get functions are affected
the glibc tests actually pass.
I didn't notice this because I don't normally bootstrap java.
