My test script is now published at

I found and fixed another bug in QEMU's userland emulation, specific to
sparc.  I fixed three bugs in klibc.  With those changes, the test
results are:

                                2.0.4          2.0.5          master

ppc/powerpc-linux-gnuspe:       fail: sigint,  fail: sigint,  fail: sigint,
                                2c             2c             2c

riscv64/riscv64-linux-gnu:      N/A            pass           pass
s390x/s390x-linux-gnu:          fail: fcntl    pass           pass
sh/sh4-linux-gnu:               pass           pass           pass
sparc64/sparc64-linux-gnu:      fail: all      fail: sigint,  fail: sigint,
                                               2c             2c
x86_64/x86_64-linux-gnu:        fail: fcntl,   pass           pass
                                all shared

Note that all the differences in test results between static and shared
builds, except for 2.0.4/x86_64, were due to the QEMU ELF loader bug
and have now disappeared.

So klibc is in now in a pretty good state on most architectures I'm
able to test.  And I wouldn't be surprised if some of the remaining
failures are due to other QEMU userland emulation bugs.
