Greg and Bas, I want to thank you both for all your work testing these

I've been out at conference so been out of it for a bit and just slowly
getting back on the horse.
I saw you both tested 3.7.0rc2 with ARM and had failures.

Greg - so you saying if you compile with -O0 it works even on ARM?

Were these an issue in 3.6.3.  Sorry if I missed the thread about that.

Reason I ask is to know if this a long standing issue or something we
introduced in 3.7.0.

If long standing, I'd like to release as planned this coming week 3.7.0 and
then tackle these issues in 3.7.1 and 3.6.4 releases.
