Bug#900817: ghc: Please drop obsolete patch powerpcspe-disable-FPU-code.patch

Source: ghc
Version: 8.2.2-3
Severity: normal
User: debian-powerpc@lists.debian.org
Usertags: powerpcspe


The patch powerpcspe-disable-FPU-code.patch is obsolete and can be dropped,
it was based upon wrong assumptions and flawed tests on my side, I have
updated the bug report upstream as invalid as well [1].

Just passing "--enable-unregisterised" is actually enough to get GHC to
build on PowerPCSPE e500v2. A complete native port would for PowerPCSPE
would actually be more involved and would require more than just disabling
this singular piece of assembly code, the native code generator (NGC) would
have to reworked as well.
