If a binutuls can build kernel, gcc, glibc and binutils on x86, it is good
enough for me.  Any binutils release has bugs (some may be critical),
which may not be known if it isn't released.   I will make sure that all
bugs are fixed as soon as possible.  I don't see why it should take
a month to make a release.  A week should be plenty.  You just deal
with bugs.  The next binutils release won't be the first nor last one
with bugs.  There is no point to spend a month trying to make it
