Apart from the already mentioned, patch 0031 is needed too as well as
0032 (I suppose). And 0035 should be included too. A tree with that list
of patches passes all tests for all builds I can produce.

Actually the current full set of incremental patches, up to and
including 0035, passes all tests too but that tree is probably in more
need of testing for BE and/or alignment problems.
