I think there must be some misunderstanding here.  IIUC, the problem with
the builders is not related at all to the quality of the PPC64 or s390
gdb ports.  The problems are something else beyond GDB's control, they're
network, oversubscription, etc. problems, something like that.  The builder
machines have simply not been able to exercise their basic function stably
enough, in turn causing problems for developers, instead of helping.  What
can the community, as in, GDB maintainers, do, then?  I for one have no
idea what I (just a developer) can do here.  I think that the best course
of action is to disable reporting while investigations proceed, which I
understood it being exactly what is being done here.  I don't think
Sergio deserved the reaction.
