That doesn't mean your patch doesn't cause the current bootstrap
failure. In fact, I checked, by backing out the patches responsible
for the previous failure, and your patch definitely causes bootstrap
to fail. There may be other bootstrap problems that your patch is
hiding, but the current error is your patch.
A big clue that your patch was broken should have been the 38
powerpc-eabisim regressions. Another clue is that the location of the
bootstrap failure changed; before it was a compare failure, now it's a
crash while building stage1 libgcc.
In fact, this is why I need you to fix your patch ASAP; it's
preventing me from further work. What I'd like to do is have the
tester consider .o file miscomparisons as another kind of testcase
