In feb19eae/ghc:

testsuite: mark tests broken on powerpc64

The following tests fail on powerpc64 and have a ticket.
Mark those tests as expect_broken.

Here are the details:
The PowerPC native code generator does not support DWARF debug
information. This is tracked in ticket #11261. Mark the respective
tests broken on powerpc64.

testsuite: mark print022 broken on powerpc64
Ticket #11262 tracks difference in stdout for print022.

testsuite: mark recomp015 broken on powerpc64
testsuite: mark recomp011 broken on powerpc64
This is tracked as ticket #11323 and #11260.

testsuite: mark linker tests broken on powerpc64
Ticket #11259 tracks tests failing because there is no RTS
linker on powerpc64.

In 1dadd9a9/ghc:

testsuite: Mark broken tests on powerpc64le

Mark all failing tests that have a ticket for powerpc64 as broken. Most
of these failures are due to the lack of linker support in the runtime

Test Plan: validate on powerpc and AIX

Given that 8.2.1-rc1 is imminent, I'm bumping these off to the 8.4

This ticket won't be resolved in 8.4; remilestoning for 8.6. Do holler if you are affected by this or would otherwise like to work on it.
