What I don't understand is, shouldn't such a change that affects
dozens of packages go through FESCo? If it did, why did we not see an
announcement with BIG CAPITAL LETTERS with cream on top?

Not a FESco decision by a mile, it is a bug... patches welcome as always. You also were warned on -devel, several times in fact that we had this problem. _Nobody_ with ppc skills volunteered to help actually fix the problem so now it's disabled till the ppc arch team helps out with a solution. Nobody on the Mono SIG has the hardware to test this nor the in depth knowledge about the architecture to fix it. It has been reported to upstream as well so hopefully we will see this situation mended soon.
