On an x86_64-linux to arm-linuxeabi cross build I see these:
FAIL: Default group size
FAIL: Group size=2
FAIL: Cortex-A8 erratum fix, relocate bl.w and far call

They look to be all due to hash traversals changing with different
symbol table contents, so really a testsuite problem.

Other than that, your branch looks good after I apply the ppc64 fixes.
Give people a week to do some native testing then commit it.
