> Feedback is welcome,

__sparc_v8__ does not mean 64-bit longs or pointers as implied here:

#ifndef __SIZEOF_LONG__
#if (defined(__sparc_v8__) || defined(__sparc_v9__))
#define __SIZEOF_LONG__ 8
#define __SIZEOF_LONG__ 4

"v8" was the last 32-bit standard of the cpu architecture.

Otherwise looks fine.

Although this port won't be very useful until it can be built in
32-bit mode.  As most applications on sparc64 systems are still
32-bit.  Like on powerpc, people only rarely build things 64-bit on

You need to build with "-Wa,-Av9a" on the GCC command line for that
case so that the assembler allows the v9 instructions emitted by your
macros, even when building for 32-bit.

Hope this helps.
