For powerpc, yes. Ben is working on a patch to fix the problem, which turns out
to be tricky.

unicore32 - correct, it doesn't build at least since 3.0. The maintainer submitted
a set of patches to Linus to fix the problem a couple of weeks ago, but for some
reason Linus doesn't accept it. I guess it will be up to Linus and the unicore
maintainer to decide the fate of the architecture. I don't want to drop the build;
this way people are and will be painfully aware that there is an architecture which
did not build for at least 15 releases.

[ Not that score is any better, really, but I have no means to build it. ]
