The annual "Christmas present" has arrived: newlib-1.20.0 (c.f. below).

I meanwhile rebased the rtems-newlib patches against newlib-1.20.0.

Technically, the actual differences to the last newlib-1.19.0-based spin 
should be marginal, because the last newlib-1.19.0 spin only lagged a 
few weeks behind of newlib-CVS-HEAD.

Corresponding rpm-builds are spinning and unless something goes utterly 
wrong, the resulting packages will land in the repositories within the 
next 24 hours.

Should something go wrong, these packages will have to wait until after 
Christmas, if not next year.
