I am one of upstream maintainers of libgcrypt, merging patches into upstream.

I think that the patch libgcrypt-sparcv9.diff is bogus and can be removed; (1) If it will be applied to SPARC V9, it is only valid when you build 32-bit ABI for the 64-bit architecture. This is very rare use case (as of now in 2021), possibly it made sense when 32-bit ABI was common. (2) It doesn't work for SPARC V9 (have never worked) machine, because of typo (space_v9, instead of sparc_v9).

Please consider removal of the patch.

Hi, @gniibe! Thanks for your comment. I'm the maintainer of libgcrypt for SUSE and openSUSE. I'll update to version 1.9.4 now and I'll remove the sparc_v9 old-and-broken patch.

I've seen you are considering some of our FIPS patches for inclusion upstream. Please, let me know if you need something from our side.

When updating to future version like 1.10.x , remember to change --enable-random=linux to --enable-random=getentropy and drop/review all the rng or random* patches. It is also wise to disable the jitterentropy stuff as the linux kernel already has its own jitter-based entropy mixed into the kernel random pools.
