Hi, Yury

We are trying to test ilp32 in our arm64 board. But we got more
failure compare with you. So, I am wondering if we could align
the test environment with you. The source code we used:

1. glibc: the new-api branch of glibc from

2. Kernel: rfc5 from Is the
rc6 in your branch is the latest one? From the commit message, I
do not find any difference. Is it just a rebase?

3. Toolchain 4.9.3, could you provide the binary of toolchain(both
cross and native, gcc, gdb...)? It may be very useful for me or
other guys who interested build their own filesystem from
buildroot or something.

4. LTP: master.

For the glibc part, I found that there are 11 patches of ilp32 in top,
but the original 28 patches of ilp32 is not in the top, there are more
than 900 patches between them(referece the list below). Are you
willing rebase all the ilp32 relative patches. It is very useful for
reviewing and debugging. I saw andrew request the account in glibc,
maybe it has already been in processs?).

I have new glibc that follows new ABI:

sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/aarch64/ilp32/getdents64.c is wrong, struct
dirent64 is not the same as struct dirent. The file needs to be renamed
to sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/aarch64/ilp32/getdents.c so that __getdents64
comes from sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/generic/getdents64.c.

sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/aarch64/ilp32/*xstat*.c should not set errno,
INLINE_SYSCALL already does that, and returns -1 on error.


Thank you. I'll fix it
