Yes, the Firefox build was successful and my runtime tests have been good too.
We're working on fixing the toolchain on mips* now (thanks to Aurelien), but
other than that there shouldn't be anything missing at this point with the
recent upload of rust-cbindgen.
I haven't managed to bootstrap rustc 1.41 on armel, that's not an issue for
FF/TB as they can't build on armel due to the lack of nodejs, but it's a problem
for armel itself if at some point an update to rustc is needed (e.g. to fix a
security bug). If someone can help with that front, please see the rustc pu bug
(#970132) and get in touch.
I haven't looked at Thunderbird yet (see Carsten's message) but the toolchain
should be the same, so in that regard we should be good.
