Hi folks,

Hi see Documentation/SubmittingPatches for how to submit patches inline
instead of as attachments.

Do you want me to resend the configure.ac change as per wiki article? I can also create a PR on GitHub. I am happy with both as long as I don't have to retain the patch for myself only ;-)

For the sha1dc change it seems trivially correct, but we import that
upstream project as-is, could you please submit a pull request at
https://github.com/cr-marcstevens/sha1collisiondetection then we can
update our version?

Sure thing, will do.

Do we want to also have something in config.mak.uname to always do this
on HP/UX?

I am not convinced by that. I wouldn't mix operating system with compiler settings. One could also use GCC on HP-UX. The one above is for HP aCC.

  /* Not under GCC-alike or glibc or *BSD or newlib or <processor whitelist> */
-#elif (defined(_AIX))
+#elif (defined(_AIX) || defined(__hpux))

Seems sane, and per my googling even though HP/UX now runs on
little-endian hardware it's always big-endian. But in this manual they
advice doing it at runtime with a TEST_ENDIAN() macro in sys/portal.h:

Is that something we need to worry about / support? E.g. in the
configure script?

That'd be much more work to extend configure.ac for that because is a runtime check. Since there are no real products vailable on x86 for HP-UX I'd neglect that. Our HPE salesman told us that this will be available somewhere in the future. So, I think this is very good for now.
