Hi Jari,

thank you very much for the effort you put into it.

Lots of problems with doubles and floats, I see. I think Grzegorz 
observed double/float representation issues with libffi & arm using 
SableVM, too.

Thank you very much. I'm toying with skyeye at the moment to get an arm 
emulator enviroment set up, since qemu's arm emulation didn't work very 
well for my attempts and then I hope to be able to look into it in more 

On a side note, I think the idea to wrap the tests up in a test.jar 
file, is quite good for a few reasons:

a) It avoids the kjc compilation step for the tests. That can take a 
while on a platform with a slow CPU and just the interpreter engine.

b) It avoids bugs in the underlying platform's port of kaffe creeping 
into the class files generated by kjc for the regression tests.

c) It would make remote testing simpler.

So, I'd be interested in your patch to TestScript ;)
