I've installed part #1, #2, #4 and part #3 for x86, PowerPC, SPARC and IA-64.
The PowerPC and SPARC bits as approved, the x86 and IA-64 bits as obvious.
This was tested on x86/Linux, x86-64/Linux, PowerPC/Linux, PowerPC64/Linux,
IA-64/Linux, SPARC/Solaris and SPARC64/Solaris.
I'll repost the remaining bits for Aarch64, ARM, Alpha, MIPS and HP-PA.
