I'm happy to place a collective set of patches in a contrib directory
but it would be nice to know which parts have not been merged.  For
example, the binutils 2.12 release branch should have been cut last
weekend so verifying that has all binutils patches is valuable.
Similarly newlib 1.10 is out and it would be nice to know about it
as well.  I already know one minor i386 problem with it and have
asked about he possibility of a 1.10.1.

Long term, it is better to get things merged but until then,
we are happy to make things available.
