And you're asking after the fact. I'm not a mind reader to know about
this wishy washy process. The previous diffs were ok'd by two other
developers without any mentioning of this. In the past when I floated a
similar diff and was told that I should be enabling it everywhere. If
they knew this is what is expected then they should have said something
not to ok the diff making me think its ok to move forward.

Yes, that was the first revision. The failing tests were fixed mostly by
Ulrich when I pointed out that the 64-bit PowerPC integrater assembler
was missed being enabled in the LLVM backend by Eric Christopher with
the Clang front end bits being commited and the rest by me. The second
revision was ok'd with the intent that the tests are passing and they

No tests are failing at the moment even on the PowerPC build bots..
