[Pkg-rust-maintainers] Bug#917048: cargo: Please drop patch to disable incremental builds on sparc64

Source: cargo
Version: 0.31.1-1
Severity: normal
User: debian-sparc at lists.debian.org
Usertags: sparc64


We have finally figured why incremental builds are not working on
sparc64 which turned out to be a bug in the file locking API of
the Rust compiler [1].

While upstream hasn't fixed the bug yet, I have provided a temporary
fix for the bug in #917000 [2]. Once this bug has been fixed, incremental
builds work fine on sparc64 and the patch to disable incremental builds
in cargo, 2007_sparc64_disable_incremental_build.patch, is no longer

I am therefore setting this bug as blocked by #917000.
