Sorry for opening a can ...

I followed the answers and herewith I withdraw the patch. I first did 
not understand your nack. But now I see that it is something more 

I'm open to test patches if that would help.

Btw, I'm astonished that the libstdc++ testsuite does pass flags per 
test case and not per architecture/os switch in the .exp files.
Adding a new architecture/os means editing a lot of test cases and 
adding the needed options....
