I've accumulated a handful of patches to cope with some failures here,
(I've sent those to this list some time ago but don't remember any
The only hunk that i'm undecided on is the strace-undef-syscall.patch
which was needed for ARM_EABI which doesn't declare those obsolescent
syscalls: Should they be cought nevertheless like the patch does, or
should they be unavailable if the respective syscalls are unavailable
(since suddenly going EABI->OABI will do no good anyway)?

thanks and cheers,
