Ok, I got just about all the targets working. The only ones that don't
pass the hello world smoketest (it natively compiles and runs a threaded
hello world program) are armv4eb (which qemu doesn't emulate), m68k
(ditto), mips64 (which doesn't even ls -l without showing bugs) and
sparc (which is static only and building -lpthreads static is a
dependency nightmare between libc and libpthreads, I should poke the
qemu guys about that but not today). Everything else that _was_ broken
is fixed, including armv6l, sh4, and mips.
Even powerpc-440fp worked, which it shouldn't. (I migrated powerpc to
use baseconfig, which yanked the old ppc440 symlink dependency, meaning
the ppc440 config is baseconfig-linux with no arch-specific additions,
yet it booted. Huh? with zero platform specific lines, the DEFAULTS
worked? Not questioning it. I need to do a proper -M bamboo board next
time now that QEMU's grown more support for ppc440...)
And so, I cut a release. Tagged commit 1375, uploading the 8 gazillion
binary tarballs and the source tarball as we speak. I'll have to do
proper release notes and update the website tomorrow.
