With one of your previous patches applied, I saw

powerpc-eabisim  +FAIL: VLE relocations 1
powerpc-eabisim  +FAIL: VLE relocations 2

I configure with
CFLAGS="-g -O -fno-inline" /src/binutils-current/configure --disable-nls --enable-plugins --build=x86_64-linux --target=powerpc-eabisim

Failures look like:
regexp_diff match failure
regexp "^01800054 <sub1>:$"
line   "01800074 <sub1>:"
regexp_diff match failure
regexp "^ 1800054:	00 04       	se_blr$"
line   " 1800074:	00 04       	se_blr"

Easily fixed by simply replacing all the addresses with .*

The current patch is OK to apply with or without the testsuite fix,
please fix it sometime though.
