Wow.  Thank you very much!
Was that also including running the test-suite before and after
with no regressions?

But it strengthens mine. ;-)

Out of curiosity, what would change your position (that the
correction is inappropriate for the 3.3 branch IIRC)?
A test-case that exposes this bug for SPARC (3.3 and 3.4
That this bug through other changes gets exposed in a SPARC
bootstrap (3.3 and 3.4 respectively)?

No, it doesn't look similar at all to what I remember, except
for failing at link time.  (I don't remember details about the
failure I saw except it wasn't __eprintf; I think it was a SEGV.
I hope to get to the details in a PR soon.)
