They don't necessarily have to be fixed.  There just needs to be
someone willing to accept responsibility for them, so that the global
maintainers can say "it's not my problem; it's his/her problem".
After all, I haven't done much IA-64 work over the last few years, and
only fixed a few token problems, but that was good enough that
everyone could point at me and say it was my problem if something
broke.  Fortunately, backends rarely are responsible for breaking
other things, so in practice this isn't much work.
