This is really great! Thanks for working on this.

I had to change one thing in the patch. It tries to create a file
(os_linux_sparc.cpp) and then tries to patch it later on. That doesn't
work because we first check if the patch as a whole applies (and it
doesn't since the second patch to the file will find the file doesn't
exist yet, because it is a dry-run). So for now I have folded the two
patches into one. (Another solution would be put the new files in the
overlays and apply the patches on top of that - but then we need to
change the to switch the overlays/patch order.)

    * patches/icedtea-sparc.patch: Merge os_linux_sparc.cpp patch hunks.

Committed and pushed.
