That is clearly not true of the code that actually got checked in. Looking
at your patch in the mailing list archive, I don't see anything different
that would explain how your patches could possibly have worked with a
normal fpu-using powerpc32 build. Either you are mistaken, or you did not
test with the current code base, or Ulrich managed to break your changes in
some way I am overlooking. From what I can see they were broken to start.
