Thanks. It also passed on everything I tried it on. I've pushed it to blead.

Sadly the two available sparc machines at the GCC compile farm are scheduled
to be decommissioned at the end of June, so I probably won't be able to test
on sparc for much longer. However, it does seem that the kernel bug is fixed.
Previously the test suite had been be able to create an unkillable busy
process. So it looks like it is now "safe" to run a blead smoker on 32 bit
sparc Linux.
