Hi maks,

Adding Anton in CC (who submitted klibc ppc64le support upstream [1]),
in case he can help.

I agree.
Thanks for accepting to carry the workaround for ppc64el too.

Unfortunately I don't find myself in klibc expertise area. I can try,
but maybe it's not the effective way forward (not sure I'd be able to
devote the effort/time that I personally would like to).
Hopefully others can contribute in that more significantly. :)

Thank you.
