As noted in another thread this would involve updating gcc to gcc-8.
There are some other patches which could go straight into master (I'm
looking at libelf specifically, probably others), but glibc and
gcc/libstdc++ I'm not sure how to do those ones.

Actually, looking at the branch there's also findutils-boot0, but that
can be changed to only be for target-powerpc for now and changed in
core-updates. I have a similar one I had to do for binutils on
powerpc-linux that I managed to make not affect other architectures.
