SPARC support

Does anyone know if SPARC on GNU/Linux support currently works in
IcedTea, or for which releases it did work?

We have some local RPM patches for it that change the include directives:

-#include <asm-sparc/traps.h>
+#include <asm/traps.h>

and replacing the current IcedTea fix:

-+#if defined(__sparc__) && defined(__arch64__)
-+# include <asm-sparc/traps.h>
-+# include <asm/traps.h>

I seem to remember something about sparc and sparc64 support being
merged together in the kernel, which is what this would suggest.  I'm
trying to work out if it's worth bringing over these patches.
