ok, the first thing I did was move globtype (which provides TSymStr) 
from the implementation uses to the interface uses so it would be 
available at that line.

However I then discovered that the signature of the function in the new 
patch did not match the signature of the function it was overriding.

 From the patch:
function a_call_name(list: TAsmList; pd: tprocdef; const s: TSymStr; 
const paras: array of pcgpara; forceresdef: tdef; weak: boolean): 
tcgpara; override;

The overridden function.
function a_call_name(list : TAsmList;pd : tprocdef;const s : TSymStr; 
forceresdef: tdef; weak: boolean): tcgpara;override;

The only thing that was done with the parameter was to pass it through 
to the inherited function so I simply got rid of it.

The build then failed with

/usr/bin/ppc386 -Ur -Xs -O2 -n -Fui386 -Fusystems 
-Fu/fpc-3.0.0+dfsg/fpcsrc/rtl/units/i386-linux -Fii386 -FE.

hlcgcpu.pas(192,21) Error: Identifier not found "taicpu"
hlcgcpu.pas(232) Fatal: There were 2 errors compiling module, stopping

That was easy enough to fix, just adding a couple of things to the 
implementation uses.

The result of that was a successful build, I have not done any 
functional tests of the result yet. Debdiff attached, if someone else 
wants to test and commit/upload feel free to go ahead if not i'll do it 
when I get around to it.

I also notice some junk in the debdiff, presumablly the clean target 
needs work.
