(I posed this question in  RT #41912 five months ago but got no response. I want to close that ticket because its main concerns have been addressed. So I am re-posing the question here in Trac.)

Under tools/dev/ we have two files which appear to be Valgrind suppression files:

$ ll tools/dev/*supp
-rw-r--r--   1 jimk  jimk  1414 Mar  8 09:25 tools/dev/parrot.supp
-rw-r--r--   1 jimk  jimk  5186 Jul 20  2008 tools/dev/parrot_8.supp

parrot_8.supp has not been functionally changed since it was first added to the repository:

r14325 | leo | 2006-08-23 07:18:24 -0400 (Wed, 23 Aug 2006) | 3 lines

* fix off by one set allocation in reg_alloc
* add valgrind suppression file for 64bit parrot

Is parrot_8.supp still needed? Or has it been subsumed into parrot.supp?

Valgrind users, please comment.

Thank you very much..

I use parrot.supp on amd64. There's no reason why the file can't be shared for all platforms. In fact, I've recently (r39495, r39856) added a bunch of linux/amd64-specific stuff to make it run a little more smoothly here.

Killing parrot_8.supp gets a +1 from me.
