Send this to upstream please and post link here:

Comment 3 Alexandre Rostovtsev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-09-13 01:52:00 UTC
I am not convinced that this patch is a good solution.

First, instead of "defined(__LP64__)", you should use "!defined(__ILP32__)". The __LP64__ check happens to work with gcc on linux, but is not guaranteed to be portable.

Second, perhaps a better solution is to add a new value for the CPU() macro, e.g. WTF_CPU_X32, and use that instead of X86_64. Or maybe make x32 part of CPU(X86)?

So please open a bug with upstream - - and see what they think. (I am asking *you* to open an upstream bug because you are using x32, and I am not, so you will be able to test things for upstream developers, and I won't.) And as Pacho said, then post the link to the upstream bug here.

I can confirm this. contains patches to handle this bug. but I guess they are "rebased" for newer versions and therefore not working out of the box...

We should probably wait for upstream, otherwise will be impossible to update patches on every major release
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-11-18 20:11:23 UTC
Looks like upstream won't support it for now
