Not quite. We were using a newlib-1.14.0 with some hand-selected backported
bug-fixes from newlib-1.15.0 applied.

Well, the primary difference between RTEMS-4.7's newlib-1.14.0 and 
newlib-1.15.0 is 
a) The barrier stuff
b) POSIX-related API changes (Note: These are not bug fixes, these are
c) newlib-1.15.0 has hardly seen any testing.

Apart of these, there isn't much difference between the current
rtems-4.8/newlib-1.15.0 toolchains and the rtems-4.7/newlib-1.14.0+ toolchains.

In other words: If you really want to, it isn't too late to make the current
rtems4.8/newlib-1.15.0 toolchains the nominal rtems4.7 toolchains.
