How much difference is there between x32 and riscv32 in upstreams? As
they would trip on the same issues, one would assume that if the issue
is fixed for one, it gets fixed for the other too.
But might be that relevant upstreams need to have much of the code
duplicated (fixing one copy does not fix the other)
The fixing is often wrapped in target-specific conditionals, and so
fixing one does not address the other, until the conditional is
expanded with additional or statements, or checks are done from first
principles (e.g. actual type sizes).
