Thanks. The reason I ask is that I didn't manage to bootstrap it (with
qemu), but now that I rechecked I can no longer reproduce the failure.
Either some of the last minute changes before the 7.3 release fixed that
or it was a qemu bug. Now the only thing that's missing is the go
compiler, but that depends on libffi which still needs some porting.
Perhaps someone wants to take a look at
<https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/openSUSE:Factory:RISCV> to see
what else is missing.
