[Gc] Powerpc/m68k/freebsd issue running test_stack

We've received Debian bug #680100 [1] that test_stack is spinning out
on powerpc.  There is also a possibly related bug with test_stack
seeming to give a bus error on m68k [2], and on i386 with the freebsd
kernel [3].

The change that you pushed the other day should only have affected
ia64; so I think what we're seeing here is an existing issue just
showing up because the recent update has made libatomic-ops rebuild on
all these architectures.  The freebsd one pre-dates recent changes...

Maybe these are related, or maybe not.  It would be great if anyone
with these architectures could duplicate the problem to give us some
more clues.
