Sorry for being a bit vague.
The above PR was for netbsd-6 tackled by
Initially, this set of changes were requested pulled up:
sys/arch/powerpc/include/userret.h 1.29, 1.30
However, this resulted in build failures on netbsd-6, and was
subsequently reverted, and later on the following set of
revisions/patches were pulled up:
sys/arch/powerpc/include/userret.h 1.29-1.30 (patch)
sys/arch/powerpc/oea/oea_machdep.c 1.72 (patch)
sys/arch/powerpc/include/psl.h 1.20 (patch)
with this text:
Add a check to make sure that if PSL_FP is set, we own the FPU.
Don't clear PSL_FP/PSL_VEC.
Remove PSL_SPV from BOOKE PSL_USERMOD
Don't preserve PSL_FP/PSL_VEC in cpu_setmcontext.
[matt, ticket #1310]
It's this latter set of files I've updated via "cvs update -r netbsd-6"
and I'm otherwise using 6.1 release sources.

The fixes should be part of 6.2 when/if we release it.
