Samples not built in the VM image

It appears that the builds did NOT succeed.
I apologize, I didn't carefully review the b.log files.

For each CPU there was a failure in building
rtems/c/src/libchip/network/dwmac-desc-enh.c related to __DEVOLATILE

It appears that this isn't defined, or the definition isn't found.

I see in other posts that this might be related to the version of newlib
installed in the VM.

i386-rtems4.11-gcc --version shows
i386-rtems4.11-gcc (GCC) 4.8.2 20131016 (RTEMS 

That other thread talked a lot about patching newlib,
can I just update to newlib-2.1.0?
