Sounds good.

Well, my testptp does cross compile just fine. All it needs is the glibc
library bundled with the tool chain and the kernel headers.

So this patch did not make it in, right?

Otherwise people wouldn't be disabling cross compilation ad hoc, like
in the patch that started this thread.

No rush, please do.

In the mean time, I would like to restore the that *does*
cross compile, so that people may use the test program if they
want. In fact I use this all the time, and so I am a bit annoyed that
something working was deleted and replaced with something broken.
