I poked around a little with a qemu s390x instance and see
the same failures.

One simple failure in t4015 is with:

    git diff -w >out &&
    test_must_be_empty out

Using git-2.21.0 this succeeds, while git-2.22.0-rc1 fails
and produces:

    diff --git a/x b/x
    index d99af23..22d9f73 100644
    --- a/x
    +++ b/x

I am guessing it's no coincidence that this only fails on
s390x and it is the only big endian architecture in the
fedora build system.
