You know what, I think I'm going to leave this one out.  The SuperH
ports are dead, as far as I know, and I'm not happy with a patch that
affects every architecture (except s390), isn't upstream, is no longer
understood, and doesn't actually seem to affect anything.

People have been building the static X server just fine all through the
4.3.0-0pre series without this patch.

I think it's best to drop it until its existence can be (re-)justified.
