I think you might have a staged change in your repo, I do not see
the powerpc specific one in master. In any case, I think it worth
to add some errno testing on nptl and posix tests (maybe even
incorporate nptl on posix) and add powerpc one (be aware to avoid
add a testcase with same name in same folder, as this powerpc seems
to be doing).
