Hi Aaron,

: I asked Joel Sherrill about it on the rtems-users list:
: > is there any reason why newlib doesn't enable long long support in

: so I did.

Fair enough - I was just asking.  I am not the official maintainer for
newlib (that would be Jeff Johnston <jjohnstn at redhat.com>) but I ran
across this same problem for a different toolchain so I was interested
to know if there were any expected problems.

: for future reference, should all rtems-specific patches be sent
: through Joel? 

Sorry I do not know.  My guess would be that having them discussed on
the rtems-users list would be the right thing to do first, and once
they are ready submitting them to the appropriate mailing list
(newlib at sources.redhat.com in this particular case).
