Well, I've been debugging why u-boot stopped building reprodicbly, and
it appears to be that the recent fix that really switches armhf to build
with it_CH.UTF-8 locale actually breaks u-boot reproducibility.
So, just for comparison, I also tested with other locales, including
some with non-latin "alphabets" and other countries just to vary as much
as possible, and the following all built reproducibly with each other:
And these locales built reproducibly with each other:
Haven't really figured out *what* the actual issue is, but figured I'd
share my confusion.
With this as evidence, there appear to be two kinds of locales, Italian,
and not-Italian. At least when it comes to u-boot. :)
