I would like to tweak glibc so that it only builds one POWER 620/970
libc for ppc64, and not multiple libcs with POWER6/POWER7/POWER8
This does not affect ppc64le in any way.
The reason for this change is that the ppc64 builders are awfully slow
as of late, and the multiple builds (four times currently) currently
make ppc64 the slowest architecture to build by quite a margin.
I'm seeing random-looking segfaults on Fedora builders:
This might take a while
Testing GB18030run-iconv-test.sh: line 59: 27196 Segmentation fault
(core dumped) $PROG -t ../localedata/charmaps/$from -f
../localedata/charmaps/$tc -o $temp2 $temp1 < /dev/null
I don't have logs for the other failed tasks because I reused the NVR,
sorry. All were for glibc-2.26-13.fc27, and most of them where in fact
The place varies somewhat between runs. So far, I've only seen it for
the Fedora 27.
Could it be a hardware issue?
