boost.context is irrelevant in this discussion.

do you think I've a machine for each architecture at home? I can only write
the code if requested by some users and I have to rely on the willing of
community members to test the code on the specific hardware.

You asked me about boost.context support of PPC64 and I told you that the
code is untested from my side and boost-regression tests do not exist for
But you did not respond to my email. As I did with other users it hoped
that we could fix the problem together but I didn't get any feedback from
you - don't blame me.
