Trying won't help much, ppc64 has completely different ELF ABI and parts of
compiler will have to be rewritten. Some changes are simple to implement (like
link register placement), but other things I don't understand yet (special
function preamble). I want the code ABI conforming so it won't break each time
something in GCC changes, like with the original vm_ppc.c happened.

If anyone could give me (temporal) access to ppc64 machine, with 64-bit
userspace, it would be great.
