FS#57 - libc fails on AMD-K6

pacstrap /test base
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/test/usr/lib gdb –args /test/bin/bash results in:

Program terminated with signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
#0  0xb7619991 in strcmp () from /test/usr/lib/libc.so.6
(gdb) bt
#0  0xb7619991 in strcmp () from /test/usr/lib/libc.so.6
#1  0xb75bd41f in setlocale () from /test/usr/lib/libc.so.6
#2  0x0076b7f2 in ?? ()
#3  0x0053acf6 in ?? ()
#4  0xb75b3a31 in __libc_start_main () from /test/usr/lib/libc.so.6
#5  0x0053e561 in ?? ()

So, getting the exact failing opcode is hard.

2.28-5.0 was ok,
2.28-5.2 is not.

So it’s something we changed or something changed on one of the i486 build slaves.

Happens only on the AMD-K6, all other machines with CPUs with limited special instruction
sets (Pentium-S, AMD Geode) are working fine.

happens on a Pentium-S now too.
Pentium-II is still fine, so is AMD Geode..
