Comment (by Chris Johns):

 Replying to [comment:5 Jiri Gaisler]:
 > The patch fixes the build of dl06, but several of the dlxx test then
 will fail during execution. If we push this patch, the the dl test must be
 marked as expected-fail for RISC-V.

 Tagging the tests with `expected-fail` is my preferred approach.

 > I would think that disabling building of dl tests is cleaner, see new
 suggested patch.

 I do not support doing this. Disabling or excluding tests because they
 fail hides the failures and does not encourage fixes. Why should RISCV be
 treated as special? I feel disabling tests sends the wrong message.

 I assume they passed once so regressions like this happen. I suspect if
 you wind back the tool sets to a previous version the tests might past.
 Should tools upgrades be linked to regressions? I do not think that would
 be helpful.
