there are two bugs in the current binutils of 4.9 that are can be solved
 with an upgrade (the current 4.10 version for example):

The first bug may cause great headaches if you work with hand written
linker command and assembler files.

A segmentation fault in a common PowerPC linker situation is also not
very desirable.

The GCCs for version 4.9 and 4.10 have currently the same basis (4.3.2)
and differ only in the patch files.  The current 4.10 patch contains a
fix for the relocation data problem in the PowerPC multilibs:

It would be nice if the 4.9 GCC can include this fix too.
