 What upstream?

The upstream of the various projects (eg the kernel).

I could be wrong here, but I seem to recall very very vaguely that
the upstream kernel was also going into the direction of dropping
sparc32?

Sort of. There's no kernel maintainer for sparc32 anymore. The code's still there, it just suffers bit-rot over time (aside from when davem is nice and fixes bugs there, which isn't his role). Which was my point; there isn't really an active upstream for sparc32 for us to track. People having an issue with this fact are welcome to contribute their time to keeping sparc32 alive. I've been one of the strongest proponents, and even I can accept when I'm fighting a losing battle. :-(
