as some already might have noticed, there is a mass rebuild (all gcc
packages are being rebuilt) of the rtems-4.11 toolchain packages landing.
This mass-rebuild addresses 3 topics at once:
Addressing this bug made the rebuilt necessary.
2. A sync with upstream newlib.
3. Some targets' GCCs have been upgraded to gcc-4.7.2.
I am at gradually upgrading the rtems-4.11's gccs to gcc-4.7.2 where
applicable => More gcc-upgrades are likely to follow.
Remember, rtems-4.11 is the unstable, experimental, development version
of RTEMS. These changes above have only seen light testing.
Please report any issues with these toolchain. I plan to gradually
submit the RTEMS specific patches to the corresponding upstreams, if
possible and when time permits.
P.S.: There is a non-zero possibility of yet another mass-rebuild
happing very soon, because a new release of binutils is long over due
and likely to happen in near future. (Initially I had intended to wait
for the new binutils, but I feel I've waited long enough ;) ).
