No worries here. I think the most people in this thread don't have
much time for debian-sparc anyways. :-)

No difference, it's a sun4v machine too and the FPU register
corruption fix is still required.

Since we identified that the udev (systemd) problems are caused by a
"gold" linker, the next steps are
build current binutils and check whether the situation is improved.

And if it's not, patch a systemd package to use the "bfd" linker
instead of "gold".
