I created BZ# 15905.

Sorry for forgetting, and thanks for reminding me.

I've checked in the patch which fixes the failures we're
seeing in Fedora on this hardware.

There are 4 places that require dl_hwcap to be used:
* ifunc-impl-list.c (__libc_ifunc_impl_list) - Already uses dl_hwcap.

* dl-irel.h (elf_ifunc_invoke) - Already uses dl_hwcap. Was fixed by
  Richard Henderson in commit 73da6bacf (along with other instances
  in dl-machine.h).

* dl-machine.h (elf_machine_rel) - Fixed by this patch.

* dl-machine.h (elf_machine_rela) - Fixed by Will Newton's patch.

These are the only place that I know about that require using
dl_hwcap and all of them are now fixed.

The uses are inconsistent in their use of `unsigned long int'
vs. 'int' for the dl_hwcap parameter, but changing that could
be a future cleanup.

I will note that the 32-bit ARM testsuite on this hardware is
not clean e.g.

make[1]: *** [/home/codonell/build/check-local-headers.out] Error 1
make: *** [check] Error 2

In particular ifuncmain5picstatic.out looks troublesome, and
I need to look at it to see if something is further wrong with
the IFUNC support.
