Sounds good :). Then I think I am mostly worried with sparc64. It has
really lots of testsuite failures.

However the math tests seems to shows a lot of corner cases issues which
has been fixed in generic implementations. As I commented with Jason Duerstock,
John Paul Adrian, and James Clarke in a private thread I think easier solution

You can just say Adrian :-).

for 2.28 is we remove the arch-specific faulty ia64 math implementation and
use the generic ones. If performance is an issue we reimplement and fixed
them if it is the case.

Do you think you could whip up a patch that we can apply to the 2.26 package
in Debian? If it's just a matter of disabling ia64-specific code, it shouldn't
be too difficult, should it?
