Greg McGary's patches as referenced at <https://sourceware.org/legacy-ml/libc-hacker/2006-11/msg00013.html> were never merged, and I don't know how big the changes to .S files were or if they were ever posted. Many files were subsequently fixed as part of bringing up support for powerpc64le, but without actual 32-bit LE testing as part of each release cycle there's not much evidence of correctness for LE of code not used for powerpc64le. -- Joseph S.
