Looks good to me, but you should probably wait for others to comment.

I have no idea why I thought I needed to touch gnulibiberty in this changeset. Remove that alltogether

Update binutils only and properly

Have not much to say about my stuff except two things:

  • the testsuite patch is not really needed. If you want to run the testsuite a few more bits are needed which are not yet committed. I usually run the testsuite to verify my changes. If I run towards zero failures I feel ready to prepare for commit. So the patch itself has had several successful test suite runs.
  • the gas part is still pending here, I need to prepare for binutils review. lack the time :( But long term test is ongoing :)

Update to current state of my patch for binutils.

This compiles under QEMU with a little bit of work.

Update to match what bapt is about to commit. This review will be closed
when his commit hits the tree.

Late night comment....

The gas/|in is stuff is not correct but it does not harm.
See here:

For now it does not matter. But for binutils-2.25 you can skip everything.

Thanks for bringing this in!
