I do not know if something is twisted with the report [1] of Cuirass but
many things seems missing.  Right?

Therefore, if many things are still missing, I suggest to apply #62967
[2].  It removes the annoyance you spotted out in #62954 [3].  And as I
explained in [4], it will be safe because ’valgrind’ appears only in the
testsuite of ’lz4’ and ’valgrind’ is not even run there.

Doing so, it will fix failures for powerpc64le and will increase the



Moreover, I have revamped the GHC bootstrap chain.

 1. it cuts the number of Haskell compilers to build,
 2. it separates building the compiler itself and running the testsuite,
 3. it introduces ghc-toolchain that glue one compiler and its testsuite.

Well, #2 removing failure for i686 [5] since the failure of the
testsuite of 8.10.7 is not blocking for 9.2.5.

However, the patches needs more polishing and then because of ’pandoc’
depending on the GHC bootstrap, it would a large rebuild.

Since Haskell is also broken on master for i686, I guess the option is
to apply on some “feature™ branch” after the merge, right?
