s390x patch maintenance
-----------------------

Node.js 4.x LTS branch ships a v8 version that does not include support
for s390(x) architecture. It will be available in a later version, since
latest upstream v8 supports it.

This branch of v8 provides good maintenance for a version that works with nodejs 4.x
https://github.com/andrewlow/v8z/commits/4.5-s390

So it is the task of the Debian Maintainer of Node.js LTS 4.x to regularly check
and incorporate the new commits (every month or so) from 4.5-s390, see also the
comments in debian/patches/s390.patch.

Also when upstream Node.js backports a v8 commit, it must be adapted to the s390
patch as well (it is usually trivial to apply the same changes as the ones that
are applied to other architectures).
