Well, what does git blame, and the initial submission of the
corresponding patches say?  The answer probably lies in what makes them
"mostly identical" rather than "exactly identical" being arch
specific.  If the differences are really small, then we could merge
them into gcore.exp, using istarget to guard the arch specific bits.
