how can you say that commiting untsted code to sparc initialisation
is the right thing?  there's absolutely nothing in the above statement
(or any part of tiering) that supports this, nor has it ever been an
OK thing to do in our community.

IMO, the right fix for you to get past the build problem originally
would have been to disable -fno-common on sparc and file a PR.
