https://sourceware.org/newlib/ , which is mostly
architecture-independent, though definitely may need some arch-specific
code (setjmp/longjmp are usual suspects). If there's a fork of Newlib
with Xtensa-specific changes, made in 2015, and not merged upstream
since then, and we chose to use it in Zephyr SDK, then ... we have a
typical downstream maintenance problem.
I definitely can look in Zephyr SDK project to see if that's true, but
I'm not sure if that would help much. The above situation doesn't
scale, and if we're blocked on outdated Newlib for one of
architectures, another approach would be to state that POSIX subsystem
requires up-to-date Newlib (on par with the rest of the archs), and
then exclude non-compliant archs from CI for POSIX subsys.
Let me know if you agree and I should prepare such a patch on next
occasion where Xtensa fails where other platforms works ok.
