I assume that the rounding direction is not implemented correctly either
kernel or libc. This has been broken since I know about it.

  test-misc.out, Error 1
not sure what is about. Possible that I forgot about it.

  tst-setcontext-fpscr.o, Error 1

I haven't signed a copyright assignment for eglibc yet, but won't
hesitate to do so if required (though I somehow doubt that my two-line
patch local-no-fma.patch qualifies for copyright protection).

This should be small enough to get accepted. Afaik German people can not sign this as they can not transfer the copyright (German law restriction).

The local-Powerpc-trampline-consider-__NO_FPRS__.patch is from Sebastian
Andrzej Siewior (CC), copied from the eglibc sources in the debian-ports
powerpcspe archive.  We'll have to ask him about the assignment.

For what its worth, I've posted on glibc-alpha and Drepper was kinda
difficult. I haven't tried again.
