After google search and check the Linux kernel, H8/300 is dead, and for
gcc-4.9.0 and binutils-2.23.2 still has h8300, do we still need it for
another OS ?
Welcome any suggestions or completions, thanks.

Drop support for Renesas H8/300 (h8300) architecture
H8/300 has been dead for several years, and the kernel for it
has not compiled for ages. Drop support for it.

The related information in gcc/binutils:
We can build h8300 cross-compiler for Linux kernel, successfully, but it has many bugs when building Linux kernel with -Os.
if we still need h8300 for another OS, is it still valuable to send these bugs to Bugzilla (although it is found under Linux)?
