Of these, mips has a number of mismatches in structs reflecting
register state, and powerpc has at least one of those too as well as
sysvipc mismatches which may be bugs. Any idea? If so now is the time
these should be fixed.

The differences to the others seem either mostly inconsequential or
due to bugs in glibc.
