Patch works for powerpc and someone else already reported it working
As expected it does NOT work on ppc64. I am not currently awake enough
to try and figure out why.
Since mips was already tested with the patch originally, that probably
just leaves sparc and s390 to test (I can't tell if s390 tested it or not,
only that s390x does not work yet due to being 64bit).
