Bug#859362: thunderbird: Please drop non-functional Add-xptcall-support-for-SH4-processors.patch

Source: icedove
Version: 1:45.8.0-3
Severity: normal
User: debian-superh@lists.debian.org
Usertags: sh4


The patch debian/porting/Add-xptcall-support-for-SH4-processors.patch hasn't been
functional for a long time. The patch adds the XPCOM stub and invocation code for
SuperH. However, the code as is no longer works as the code uses absolute jumps
instead of relative jumps as required by the newer Firefox/Thunderbird codebase.

Furthermore, the patch also places the SH-specific code into a wrong location
inside the source tree, i.e. mozilla/xpcom/reflect/xptcall/src/md/unix instead
of the new location mozilla/xpcom/reflect/xptcall/md/unix. Plus, it also still
patches the Makefile.in instead of using the more modern moz.build.

Thus, the patch is not functional in its current form and should therefore be
removed. I will shortly provide an updated, working patch to add SuperH (sh4)
support to Thunderbird.
