Is this still a problem for powerpc64? I've not seen
anything looking like a direct response or like a
status update for this.

I do see arm report(s) of problems that they also
attributed to head -r356776 . But I've no clue how
good the evidence is generally. An example message

But one part of that is for specifically for going
from -r356767 to the next check-in to head: -r356776 .
That problem likely has good evidence for the
attribution to -r356776 .
