>As I can't evaluate the impact to our officially  supported arch's I

The impact of 0011-distinguish-x32-from-amd64.patch on any other
architecture is absolutely zero, and that’s what fixes x32, so…

>and wait till they be pushed.

… I’d prefer it very much if you can merge at least that one.

The other things are one minor bugfix and a bugfix for an issue
that occurs on x32, arm64ilp32, and other architectures, while
not breaking on others (as any C programmer can see). Since it
only makes debugging output useless it’s probably good enough
to wait with them, if you must.

>would prefer to first submit your patches upstream

By all means, do that anyway.

 seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
 seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
