Hmmm, does this mean there is bad blood with you guys on this?
Hopefully you won't lump me into that camp, as all I want is to make it
so that I can grab the latest binutils (three years from now) and not
have to go through the pain of pulling this patch forward.
BTW, I have the patch for 2.26 as well. I can send both, again, if that
would be acceptable to you.
On the other suggestion, I'm working on that one and will give it
a try in the morning.
