Not fixing a bug isn't the way to get rid of it.  This isn't s390x
specific, it's incorrect code leading to failure on 64-bit BE arches,
of which there are several, it just happens that s390x is the only
officially-supported one.

I understand that you personally may not have the skills to fix it,
and need input from either a porter or upstream, but that doesn't mean
the bug magically doesn't exist if no one gives you a patch to fix it.
