Likewise, I get my results from the OBS service.

Yes, in fact I noticed the error in test arith005 and extracted the small test case
for #8849.

In #8819 I reported test failures in an unregisterised compiler produced on
my x86_64 machine using an unregisterised ghc. Almost all arith tests including arith005
fail and I suspect it might be a data layout issue. I wonder if you can reproduce
#8819 on ppc64. #8849 makes me think yes.

I’ll see if I can fix my ppc64 build on OBS and report back.
