Hello,

Merging this and https://issues.guix.gnu.org/38459 onto master allows
to successfully build bootstrap-tarballs for powerpc64le-linux-gnu
using the command:

$ guix build --target=powerpc64le-linux-gnu bootstrap-tarballs

This patch can be removed when libffi releases the next version
(probably 3.4).

Thank you

Bonus points for a ChangeLog-style commit message.  :-)

  https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Submitting-Patches.html

The patch LGTM, but I vaguely remember seeing similar patches by Efraim
in a branch (?), or was it for 32-bit PowerPC?

If there’s no collision with other patches in this area, we can happily
apply it.

Sorry, it's not clear to me yet what that is yet, will read again.

There's no collision, Efraim's patch is
<https://github.com/libffi/libffi/pull/532> and mine is
<https://github.com/libffi/libffi/pull/561>. Efraim's patch is about
POWER7 and earlier.

There's quite a few PRs relating to PowerPC bugs on libffi:

Thanks a lot for the review! Attached new patch version, I hope it is
better with the commit message now.

LGTM.  One thing before I push: do you want to replace “John Doe” by
“dftxbs3e” as the author?

I fixed the conflicts and applied to ‘core-updates’.  POWER9 support is
coming!  :-)
